Protesters in Chile on the 16th took to the streets in anticipation of the anniversary of the 2019 protests that began on the next day, the 17th of October. Clashes occurred between protesters and police, with water cannons being used, but to no use against the tens of thousands that took to the streets in Santiago.
Anarchists in Thessaloniki gathered to protest in solidarity with Dimitris Koufontinas, a former member of the 17 November revolutionary group who went on hunger strike starting on the 8th of January, demanding his transfer to the Korydallos prison in Athens which would allow him to see visitors and receive adequate medical treatment. A heavy police buildup arrived at the demonstration, detaining 7 participants without clause of arrest, later releasing them.
Around 600 protesters in Patras took to the streets demanding the repeal of a law passed by the Ministry of Education in Greece, which would allow police to re-enter universities for the first extended period since the fall of the military dictatorship following a disastrous war and student uprising in 1973-1974.
