Demonstrators in Paris, Marseille, Nancy, Lyon, Toulouse, and many other cities took to the streets as part of a sustained movement against the Global Security Bill that bans videos and photos taken of police ‘with the intent of doing harm to the officer in question’. Police in Paris assaulted protesters at the Trocadéro, deploying water cannons and arresting at least a dozen.
West Belarusians took to the streets in what was coined a “district storm”, with many small protests going on in areas that were not normally deemed to have a culture of anti-Lukashenko sentiment. Police failed to arrive in time to put down the protests, and so the “mission” of sorts was deemed a success.
Thousands of bikers and protesters across the country gathered to blockade highways, railroads, and other means of transportation against the Piñera presidency and a lack of respect for its citizens, and a lack of accountability for police brutality. Barricades went up in Valparaiso, Santiago, Talcahuano, and many other cities.
