Anarchists and antifascists gathered in Madrid in remembrance of Carlos Javier Palomino, a 16-year-old anarchist stabbed to death by a neo-Nazi in 2007. Thousands marched against the fascism that lingers in Spain, leaving dozens of works of street art as they went. Antifascist football fans also organized demonstrations of their own, both in and outside of Madrid.
Hundreds of protesters in Santiago took to the streets to demand the release of all political prisoners of Chile’s social uprising which began in 2019, as well as the resignation of right-wing President Sebastian Piñera. Police arrived with newly made militarized gear, including a tank never seen before, and furnished armored vehicles, one of which was used to drive into a demonstrator.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in the small town of Armenia, demanding the immediate withdrawal of the privatization of hospitals/healthcare and the Tributary Reform in Colombia, which would increase taxes on basic goods and services. Police attacked a 2nd crowd which had gathered at a local toll, using tear gas to disperse the peaceful demonstration.
