Protesters in Thailand took to the streets in crowds of at least 50,000 people after the spectacle of the October 16th demonstrations. Protesters have become highly organized, similarly to those in Hong Kong, with supply lines being made to distribute umbrellas, helmets, ponchos, and the like. Demonstrators prepared for an onslaught of water cannons, but the police never arrived.
Dozens of servers, baristas, and other service workers blocked Highway 85 in Bogota to demand subsidies for their new unemployment from the Colombian government, requesting negotiations with the government for either a reopening of such spaces or a stimulus to keep workers on their feet. ESMAD (riot police units) attacked the demonstrators, beating several of them and deploying tear gas.
