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 marched in the southern Santiago borough of Puente Alto to demand the release of all political prisoners of the 18th of October Uprising, many of whom have been kept in jail for over a year without the ability to see their loved ones due to quarantine. Carabineros deployed water cannons on the peaceful demonstration, shooting chemically tainted water directly at protesters who would go on to suffer burns.
Thousands of protesters marched after police assaulted a student occupation of the rector’s office in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, making dozens of arrests while using people out of uniform to attack students. The following march resulted in clashes with Molotov cocktails, firebombs, and tear gas deployed, causing the crowd to flee after the police assault.
