Here’s what the situation looks like in different cities around the world.

'We are on our feet, prepared and determined to continue mobilising and struggling for our dreams. Dictatorship, never again.'

Italy: Rossana Rossanda Speaks Bitterness

Diego Bianchi / Il Manifesto Global (Rome)

'A political force has to ask itself about what kind of world it exists in, what kind of country it’s in, and what it would do if it were in government.'

Phindile Kunene / Amandla (Cape Town)
