After the resurgence of Chile Despierto protests in October, the Chilean government installed security forces in Plaza Dignidad in Santiago, which engaged in fierce clashes with anarchist protesters. The main city square was successfully taken by demonstrators on the 6th of November.
Protesters in Malmö, Sweden, dropped a banner in solidarity with Dimitris Koufontinas, a former member of the left-wing revolutionary group 17 November, who entered a hunger strike on the 8th of January to demand his transfer to the Korydallos prison in Athens, where he would receive adequate medical care and access to visitors.
Thousands of protesters in Paris marched against reform of unemployment insurance, mass layoffs in the public sector, and job insecurity in France. Many massive trade unions participated in the demonstration, as did smaller organizations, demanding an immediate change in policy passed by neoliberal president Emmanuel Macron.
