'Oaxaca femicide': protest in the Guelaguetza, before Murat and in the streets

Oaxaca, Oax.- “Oaxaca femicide” is the legend that appears on various walls of the historic center of the Oaxacan capital, as a complaint before the lack of justice for the 667 femicides recorded so far in the six-year term of Alejandro Murat Hinojosa.

Members of the Legal Collective for Dissident Dignity (COJUDIDI) through their social networks repudiated the political campaign disguised as folklore and guelaguetza, when every day they are murdering women in Oaxaca.

The legend of “Oaxaca Feminicida” was the same one used by María Elena Ríos, who suffered an attack with acid in 2019, to protest during the first day of the Guelaguetza.

The 29-year-old woman was violently evicted from the Fortín hill after her demonstration.

According to the hemerographic count of femicide violence carried out by various groups, from December 1, 2015 to date, 667 femicides have been registered, with the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and the central valleys where there are more murders.

Inked in black on white paper, the legends are placed in visible places in such a way that the message of “Oaxaca Feminicida” is clearly read.

And it is that just last Saturday, before concluding the parade of the delegations that attended the second Monday of the hill, a tall woman dressed in typical Zapotec dress approached to the governor of Oaxaca while dancing and surprisingly took out a cardboard that said 666 femicidesin a protest that went viral on social networks.

The members of this feminist organization said that the Attorney General’s Office and the governor do not guarantee security and justice for Oaxacan women and girls.

“They will never have our silence again… We will always continue to raise our voices, appropriating our spaces and as long as there is no justice, the Historic Center will continue to witness our struggle,” they stressed.
