Mass protests against violence against women are taking place across South America



Women in South America did not go to offices, schools and government institutions to join another day of protests against sexual violence, inequality and violations of their rights.

With a strike called “A Day Without Us,” they wanted to show what life without women would look like. The day after the mass demonstrations came on International Women's Day.



In Chile, women dressed in medical clothing, workers' corners and school uniforms gathered in Santiago's Main Square, next to President Sebastian PiƱera's palace. They drummed, danced and exclaimed, “How can we be tortured and raped without anyone doing anything?”

The usually busy streets of Mexico's capital were literally empty during the morning crowds on Mondays. There were no women on public transport, schools were closed and offices were empty.

Murder of women

The protests focused on the increased number of women murders. According to the data, the number of homicides has increased by 137 percent in the last five years and the majority are unsolved.

“We don't want violence. Those who commit these crimes must be punished,” said Cristina Velez of Mexico City.

Organizers estimate that two million people gathered in Santiago on Sunday, while police say there were 150,000 and sporadic clashes with security forces.

In the Mexican capital, protesters clashed with men demonstrating abortion, some with shaved heads and raising their hands in Nazi salute.

Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador said government officials were allowed to participate in the protest procession.
