Women take the Mazatlán coastal walk to demand an end to the violence


MAZATLÁN._ Thousands of people took to the Mazatlán coastal boulevard this Wednesday afternoon to demand justice, an end to violence and the return alive of their missing loved ones, by participating in the march to commemorate International Women’s Day.

“Justice, justice, justice,” demanded the little more than 3,000 people, most of them women, several of them dressed in purple, when they participated in the march that began around 4:30 p.m. between Del Mar and Lola Beltrán avenues.

With cardboard and blankets in hand on which phrases such as “alive they took them, alive we want them back!”, “Not one more, not one more murdered”, “Where are you, we are looking for you”, and “Who will look for you when I am not here”, among others, members of feminist collectives and trackers or people looking for their missing loved ones advanced along the lane from north to south of Avenida del Mar and del Paseo Claussen while chanting the demand for justice.

Around 5:45 p.m., they arrived at the General Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada roundabout, commonly known as El Clavadista, on Paseo Olas Altas, where they continued the demand for the return of their missing loved ones, such as nurse Glorimar and justice for the girl Valentine, among others.

“We are not all here, we need Glorimar,” they said before the dozens of disappeared people in Mazatlán and Sinaloa.

There they also passed the roll and made a minute of noise for the women who are no longer in Sinaloa because they have been victims of femicides, for those who have not been located and for those who have not yet been identified.

“This is for all those women who should not be touched, when they said “NO is NO”, for all the girls who were raped under the roof of their house, for all the women who were tortured, for all the murdered women we are here in struggle and resistance”, they declared at the Glorieta Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada.

They also carried out an artistic performance painting their hands on the floor of the roundabout, where they also lit some candles in memory of the women victims of femicide or violence in general.

It was shortly after 8:30 p.m. when the hundreds of people participating in the march began to leave to their homes to continue their fight to demand justice and stop the violence.

The march was supervised by women members of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat to whom the participants gave each of them a rose.

Members of feminist groups and trackers or people looking for their missing loved ones or relatives of victims of femicide also participated in the march.

The 8M march in Mazatlán was peaceful and very participatory.
