The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating impact on people of African descent and ethnic minorities in Brazil, Britain, France, and the US, Michelle Bachelet added in a statement calling for improved access to testing and healthcare for ethnic minorities.  

Thousands gathered in Perth and Sydney to demonstrate against police brutality in the US and against indigenous deaths in custody in Australia. There’ll also be protests in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Canberra this Saturday, according to Australia media.
