Hundreds Protest Femicide in Mexico City, Burning Vehicles & Spray Painting the Presidential Palace

Updated: Nov 19, 2021 02/20. Protests raged for several days against femicide in Mexico with the President AMLO, Lopez Obrador, taking the brunt of the criticism. An average of 10 women a day are killed in Mexico and last year, 2019, set a new record for femicides according to official data.

Protesters, many of them masked, painted the words “femicide state” in blood red on the door of Mexico’s Presidential Palace and then marched through a heavy rain to the offices of a leading newspaper to protest the publication of a gruesome image of a murder victim.
