Thousands of Puerto Ricans gathered Wednesday in the commonwealth capital of San Juan to demand the resignation of Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, the second mass demonstration against the embattled leader this week.

The hashtag #RickyRenuncia, Spanish for Ricky Resign, was trending on Twitter during a Monday protest that drew hundreds to the same cobblestone streets in Old San Juan. Some police officers were injured and several people were arrested.

Hong Kong police clash with protesters in shopping mall — Quartz

A peaceful march turned violent in a busy shopping center, six weeks into a series of protests against a much-maligned extradition bill.

In the sixth consecutive week of protests in Hong Kong that began in opposition to a much-maligned extradition bill, a peaceful rally today (July 14) turned violent as scuffles broke out between protesters and police inside a shopping mall. Police said they arrested 37 people in the wake of the protest, and that 11 officers had been injured.

The protest was located in the suburban Shatin area of the city—the second to take place in the New Territories region of Hong Kong, far from the financial and shopping hubs that hosted earlier marches. Organizers say it drew 115,000 people, while the police claim attendance was far lower at 28,000.

Police on alert as protesters descend on DC for Trump’s military-themed July 4th | Fox News

President Trump is gearing up for his military-themed celebration on July Fourth, but the fireworks already are erupting as critics complain about the nature and cost of the event — and authorities worry about possible violent clashes between leftist and right-wing protesters.

Anti-war Code Pink members began arriving at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday, saying in a press release they intend “to protest the militarization of July 4” and hold an “anti-imperialist festival” Thursday on the National Mall.

They are looking to float a “Baby Trump” balloon — versions of which have been flown at protests in London — blocks away from the national celebration. The National Park Service denied their initial request to fly the blimp, but Code Pink has filed additional paperwork in a last-ditch bid to see the inflated caricature of the president take float.
