More than 200 thousand citizens came to the vicinity of the National Congress, in Buenos Aires, in 2015, to demand the implementation of comprehensive policies in order to fight against femicides and other crimes against various social groups.

The demonstration had repercussions throughout Argentina and other states, after which the movement and its slogan reached a global scale.

Today’s march will have as its motto “We want to be alive, free and debt-free!” and will depart from the Plaza de Mayo to the Congress.

Similar initiatives will take place in the rest of the country.

During the day, the Relatives of Victims of Femicides group will release testimonies from its members and photographs of the murdered people.

For its part, the organization “Mujeres Indígenas por el Buen Vivir” will denounce the systematic practice, in cruel and aberrant forms, of sexual abuse against girls and adults from indigenous peoples.

“Ni Una Menos” reported in a statement that its members will take to the streets to condemn sexist and patriarchal violence, demand an end to transvesticides, rape, childhood aggression, racism and abandonment.
