Dozens of protesters gathered outside of the Maximum Security Prison of Chile, demanding total amnesty of political prisoners of the 18th of October Uprising. They also demanded that the state respect Article 169 on the freedom of indigenous peoples, and an immediate restitution of visits to prisoners who have been kept in isolation under the excuse of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Around 100 protesters gathered at the Ministry of Macedonia – Thrace in Thessaloniki during a nationwide hospital workers’ strike in Greece, demanding more money for containing the COVID pandemic instead of emptying the budget into police repression and militarization. Demonstrators hung banners and sang chants, then dispersing to join the student demonstration taking place that day.
Protesters continue to take to the streets in Puente Alto and Santiago against the press coverage of the protests. The Chilean media has been criticized for its review of the protests, which has been overly anti-protester; it also has not touched very much on the 48 dead during the uprising in October until today.
