Global Protests Mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

HeadlineNov 26, 2019

Protesters around the world took to the streets Monday to protest violence against women. Crowds poured into the streets in Spain, Guatemala, Russia, Sudan, Turkey, South Africa, Bulgaria, France, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador and beyond to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This one of the protesters in Mexico City.

Protester: “People suffer daily. They assault us, they rob from us, they kidnap us, they rape us, they kill us and the authorities don’t even care. I beg you, have a little empathy, put yourselves in our shoes. They’re killing us, it hurts us, you don’t even realize, make laws that are just. Death to the rapists, there’s no other way.”
