Women protest in El Salvador

San Salvador, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) Women in El Salvador protested the persistence and increase of feminicides despite the existence of the state of emergency decreed by the government since last March.

So far, this year, we know that ‘more than 50 feminicides have occurred, of which 43 happened within the Emergency Regime’, assured Keyla Cáceres of the Colectiva Amorales, one of the organizations that this Sunday walked along the central Roosevelt Avenue, from the Cuscatlán Park, to the Divino Salvador del Mundo square, to demand respect for their rights.

As part of a week commemorating November 25th, International Day of Non-Violence against Women, a group of organizations addressed the existence of the clandestine grave of Chalchuapa meanwhile some demonstrators threw themselves to the ground simulating the bodies of the victims.

In 2021 authorities found about 30 skeletons of women in that place who were allegedly murdered by former policeman Hugo Osorio, who is currently serving a 70-year sentence for a double homicide.

This Sunday’s activity was organized by the Feminist Assembly together with other organizations to speak out against feminicides, missing women, the clandestine grave of Chalchuapa, among other demands.

On the other hand, the demonstrators denounced that the institutions in charge of protecting human rights are being dismantled and are not fulfilling their function effectively, which increases the dangers for women and their rights.

El Salvador is one of the Latin American nations with the highest incidence of feminicides.
