“Oaxaca Feminicide, The Mourning Continues”, Under this motto, the convening organizations point out that “in Oaxaca the wave of femicidal violence continues, Salomón Jara closes his first year of government with 101 femicides perpetrated in the famous Oaxacan Spring.”
The march will take place on November 25 starting at 3:30 a.m., the meeting point is the Monumenta, located near the Fountain of the 8 Regions in the north of the city of Oaxaca. The call establishes the following recommendations: “Bring an instrument, saucepan, conch or whatever you want to make noise, decorate it with red ribbons. Wear black with some red accessories.”
According to the Rosario Castellanos Women’s Studies Group, from December 2022 to September 2023, a total of 84 femicides were committed. The organization specialized in women’s rights assured that, during the government of Morenista Salomón Jara Cruz, femicidal violence has increased against the most vulnerable population.
GesMujer highlighted in its report that, in December 2022, which was the first month of Jara’s government, a total of 13 murders of women were committed; However, violence has grown from January to date and there are 71 femicides, figures that reflect the lack of action by the state government and call for action to combat gender violence in our state.
