Colombia to denounce police violence against women
Bogota, May 14 (Prensa Latina) Thousands of Colombians will return to the streets on Friday to protest and demand justice for the excess of public force against peaceful demonstrations, and particularly against sexual abuse in this context.
Groups of Women, mothers and different sectors will denounce today that Allison Lizeth Salazar Miranda, 17 years old, was assaulted by police officers.
According to several reports, the young woman, daughter of a police officer, was arrested on the night of May 12 in Popayan, southwest of the capital, and then was abused by four agents of the Mobile Anti-Riot Squad (Esmad).
Yesterday, her body was found lifeless and, according to reports in different media, she committed suicide. In social networks, expressions of rejection to this act of violence that today shocks Colombian society are multiplying.
Allison Lizeth Salazar Miranda, the State had the obligation to protect you, therefore, it is directly responsible for you being raped and it is up to them not to have protected you, for this they should pay as the State, wrote on Twitter an internet user who identified herself as Tere.
For Nicole, living in Colombia is to challenge day by day your maximum capacity to endure pain, because you know that no matter how much you cry for news today, the next day's news is worse.
One of the demands of the national strike is to reform the police so that it responds to its true essence.
