Around 30 protesters gathered in Orlando in solidarity with Angelo Crooms and Sincere Pierce, two 16 and 18-year-olds shot to death by police last Friday. The family had organized a large rally on the 18th with a turnout of over 200, and expects to sustain these protests in order to provide pressure against the Brevard County Sheriffs’ Office.
Dozens of protesters in Coquimbo took to the streets on the anniversary of the formation of the Carabineros, the national police agency of Chile. Demonstrators assembled in a rebuke of the organization, demanding its immediate dissolution. Carabineros arrived to suppress the protest after barricades were lit, arresting 6 people.
Hundreds of students gathered at the Statue of Venizelos in Thessaloniki in opposition to a new bill proposed by the Greek government, which would for the first time since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974 reintroduce police on university campuses. Demonstrators then marched to the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace, meeting with teachers’ unions, pressuring the regional administration not to support the new measures.
