Dozens of Italians gathered at the Greek consulate in Milan in solidarity with Dimitris Koufontinas, a former member of the 17N revolutionary group on hunger strike for nearly a month to demand his transfer to the Korydallos prison in Athens, which would give him adequate medical care and access to visitors.
Dozens of protesters in Tripoli returned to the streets to demand an increase in living conditions amid a 24-hour lockdown & work stoppage imposed by the Lebanese government.

Demonstrators then marched back to the city’s Hezbollah headquarters and al-Nour Square, before the Lebanese army then clashed with youth in a suburb of the city, where demonstrations ended for the night.
