PBI-Mexico accompanies International Women’s Day marches in Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua

Published by Brent Patterson on

On March 8, PBI-Mexico tweeted: “Under the slogan ‘Let’s go back to the streets!’, the women of Ciudad Juárez marched to the Cruz de Clavos [Cross of Nails], a symbol in memory of the victims of femicide. PBI accompanies the #8March in a city with high and worrying levels of impunity in crimes against women.”

The same day, PBI-Mexico also tweeted: “The panorama of the country is worrying. On average, 11 women are murdered per day in Mexico, 95% of the cases go unpunished and only 2% achieve a sentence. In this sense, we were also present at the mobilization that women carried out in the city of #Chihuahua.”

And PBI-Mexico also posted: “From their corporeality, women defenders of #ddhh resist different forms of violence, an unequal and patriarchal system. Given this, they articulate to defend their rights as women. Today and always we share the path for the search for rights for all.”

The words on the image say: “We walk together for a world with rights for all”
