Demonstrators and allies across Chile commemorated the 2-year anniversary of the murder of Camilo Catrillanca, a Mapuche farmer, at the hands of Chilean police, in Temucuicui, in the area of Ercilla. Hundreds of protesters and friends marched on the site of his murder, where his tractor still lies, and condemned the lack of transparency in the Chilean government while handling his case.
Police in Athens brutally assaulted protesters gathering for a demonstration in solidarity with Dimitris Koufontinas, a former member of 17N who entered a hunger strike to demand his transfer to the Korydallos prison for better medical care and visitors. Tear gas was deployed and arrests were made after only 15 minutes of the crowd beginning to assemble.
Food sector workers gathered in Athens to demand higher wages, also encouraging their colleagues to split off from traditional forms of wage labor and participate in the creation of cooperative businesses. Demonstrators held a banner reading “The state and the bosses go hand in hand. They follow their own class interests, let us follow ours! CLASS STRUGGLE!”
