More than 150,000 gathered in Buenos Aires to protest femicide and other violence against women under the campaign #NiUnaMenos.
- Celebrities, journalists, and politicians joined the massive crowd gathered outside Argentina’s Congress.
- Readings and storytelling gave voice to the suffering of many women in a country that has seen gender-based violence on the increase over the last decade.
- Similar demonstrations were held in neighboring Uruguay and Chile.
“Un grito colectivo que no cesó en la plaza y siguió retumbando en las calles…Un grito colectivo que se charlará en las casas y volverá a las redes sociales para que el tema no se apague hasta que el basta sea una realidad.”
Translation: “A collective cry that didn’t cease in the plaza and kept resounding in the streets…A collective cry that will be chatted about in homes and will go back to social media so that the point does not fade until ‘enough’ is a reality.”
