Dozens of protesters gathered outside of the Center of Justice in Santiago in support of Mauricio Cheque, a Mapuche political prisoner of the social uprising in Chile who was held in prison for over a year without trial, who faced a hearing on the 29th. Demonstrators banged on concrete poles to make noise in support of Cheuque and hanged banners on the walls demanding his release.
Thousands of students took to the streets of Athens, demanding the end of the law proposed by the Minister of Education which would bring police back to university campuses. Riot police assaulted the demonstration, sparking a series of clashes with Molotov cocktails, poles, and fire extinguishers between the crowd of students and law enforcement.
The University of California in Berkeley put up a fence around the People’s Park, which was founded by radical activists in the 1960s and inhabited by a houseless camp; in response, students protested at the site and tore down the fence, moving it to the university’s entrance in a statement to the administration that any attempt to restrict access to the area would not be tolerated by the community.
