The growing violence against women sparked a national movement of protest against femicides and gender violence. As a part of this movement, more than three hundred thousand people (others say 500,000) marched yesterday. There were demonstrations in many provinces like Jujuy, Salta and Tucuman (north), Cordoba and Santa Fe (center) Neuquen (south).

Buenos Aires: The demonstration at Congress’ surroundings was historic. Workers got out from work to march, students left schools, and many colleges shut their doors to allow teachers, workers and students to attend the demonstration. Unions, women and left organizations held rallies around Congreso, and blocked the streets.

Left and Workers’ Front’s legistlators Nicolas del Caño, Christian Castillo, Myriam Bregman, and Patricio del Corro joined women’s organization Pan y Rosas (bread and rosas) in Buenos Aires.
