Demonstrations have continued in Thailand, with protests easily gaining 100,000 people in attendance against the monarchy and the right-wing military dictatorship.

Thousands of protesters returned to the streets of Haiti, demanding the fall of the Moise regime propped up by the United States and OAS. Demonstrators clashed with police after tear gas was fired by law enforcement, then followed by riot police opening fire on the crowd with automatic weapons, but with no deaths recorded.
