Demonstrators smashed windows, spray-painted monuments and clashed with #riot police Monday on #MexicoCity’s main avenue to protest Mexican authorities’ failure to stop a spiral of violence against women.
Thousands of women took to the streets of the capital for the protest marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the latest in a series of large, rowdy marches over soaring rates of femicide and rape in #Mexico.
Masked demonstrators with sledgehammers shattered the glass panes of bus stops and advertising billboards, tore down barricades, lit a bonfire and painted messages such as “How many more need to die?” on monuments lining Paseo de la Reforma, the city’s most famous street.
