Women protest against femicides; report damage to L7 Metrobús stations

Feminist collectives began a demonstration in the capital’s prosecutor’s office, which spread to Balderas where they blocked the road and caused damage to a Metrobús station.

Despite the fact that the main entrance to the prosecutor’s office was closed, the feminists sneaked through the entrance of the Family Attention Center.

From there they took out boxes with official documents, scattered them through the streets and set fire to them.
