Hundreds march to protest against femicide in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas (VIDEO)


A hundred people including family, friends, and activists marched this Friday, November 11th, in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, capital of the state of Chiapas in Southeast Mexico, to demand justice for the femicide of a young woman whose body was abandoned on a highway in the region, last November 5th.

Her name is Estefanía Martínez, she disappeared on October 30 and her body was found seven days later, on the side of the Tuxtla Gutiérrez-Emiliano Zapata highway.

Given the lack of progress in the investigation and with the crime of femicide in total impunity, the protesters decided to march from the north of the city to the facilities of the State Attorney General’s Office in downtown Tuxtla Gutiérrez.

During the journey, women wearing a green scarf, in favor of abortion, and purple, against violence, spray painted road signs and public buildings.

The protesters chanted “We’re missing one!” and “Justice for Estefanía!”, among other slogans, the march left the emblematic Diana Cazadora monument, north of the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez and walked two kilometers to the Prosecutor’s Office, where they held a rally.
