Protesters in Britain, the United States, Canada, and Italy turned out in almost a dozen cities, including Toronto, Baltimore, Raleigh, New York, Nashville, Houston, Glasgow, and Napoli. Attendance ranged from the dozens to the thousands, with protests taking up large swaths of city squares.
Protests sparked in the central Somalian town of Galkayo amid anger over missing children; they were allegedly sent to the city of Asmara in Eritrea for military training, then deployed to Ethiopia and killed in the war and genocide against the northern breakaway province of Tigray. Police responded by opening fire into the crowd, causing numerous injuries but no reported deaths.
Anarchists gathered at the ESEIA (Journalists’ Union of the Athens Daily Newspapers) office in solidarity with the hunger strike of the former N17 member Dimitris Koufontinas, which began on the 8th of January to demand his transfer to the Korydallos prison in Athens where he will be able to see visitors and receive better medical care.
