The police in Portland aggressively assaulted protesters, pre-emptively attacking their camp before the demonstration even began as well as immediately beginning to arrest protesters after it began.
Police in Greece attacked students occupying the Rector’s Office at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, demanding the repeal of the law allowing police on university campuses. Dozens of brutal arrests were made, in response to which hundreds of demonstrators marched to the rectorate and then to the Thessaloniki Police Headquarters where the arrested students were being held.
Over 100 Portlanders returned to the weekly march for Patrick Kimmons, a black man killed by police in 2018, whose mother has led marches every week since July demanding the reopening of the case. Cheers of support came from many neighbors, and the police also were notified of the march when it came around to their precinct. Letha Winston (Kimmons’ mother) then stopped the march, led chants, and gave speeches regarding updates on the case.
