More than 1,000 protesters gathered in West Philadelphia for a protest, which, after clashes with police, quickly devolved into a riot, with teams of people looting Walmarts and the stores of other large corporations. Many cops were injured and were entirely pushed back from the city after the National Guard failed to arrive.
Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of Tripoli to demand an increase in living conditions and a stimulus from the Lebanese government, as a 3-week quarantine was put in place to be enforced by the army without any welfare packages provided. Police then arrived at the scene, attacking and tear-gassing protesters and causing at least 15 injuries.
Anarchists in Valparaiso answered the call to national mobilization across Chile by marching against Piñera in the hundreds, clashing with Carabineros who deployed chemical weapons, including tear gas and chemically tainted water cannons. No arrests occurred, as demonstrators managed to outmaneuver the Carabineros on a ground-assault.
Chileans gathered in Santiago to protest against the violations of human rights by the state of Chile, carrying signs of eyes whose pupils reflected images of state torture. Demonstrators chanted and carried a slogan on a banner saying “The eyes of the people accuse the terrorist state,” demanding the resignation of President Piñera.
