Argentina Protest Against Femicide

Argentina has witnessed a massive protest on streets by women. The women are walking out of work and wearing black to protest against femicide of a teenager named Lucia Perez.
She was allegedly drugged, raped and then impaled on a wooden spike by drug dealers. Further, she was piled with cocaine and cannabis which are very harmful drugs.

Lucia Perez was a 16-year-old girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was abducted outside her school in Mar del Plata on October 8. She was drugged and raped repeatedly. Lucia was treated violently and was sodomised with an “unspecified object” so violently that she bled out from her internal injuries, as reported by CNN.

After the attack, she was washed and dressed by her abductors. She was then dumped at a drug rehab clinic. The staff of the clinic thought that she was simply suffering from a cocaine overdose but after the detailed examination, it was found that she was subjected to violence. She later succumbed to death.

The police traced the van that dropped Lucia at the clinic and arrested the suspects. They found drugs, used condoms, sex toys and gun ammunition in the van. The third abductor is still searched.

The protesters have filled the streets with slogans #NiUnaMenos which means “not one less” . The incident has brought attention to violence against women in Latin America. The protest was launched when the family of the victim was threatened for demanding justice. Protests were held in 80 cities in Argentina and 58 others worldwide joined in.

Argentina introduced a law against femicide in 2012 and there are very harsh punishments for the men.
