The calls for a national strike are being led by the Mexican feminist collective Brujas del Mar.
The strike has been called “A day without us,” and calls on women not to go to work or school, not to go out and avoid participating in the economy in any way for 24 hours. This was what one of the members of Bruges of the Sea, Arussi Unda said.
Arussi Unda said: “I think that women in Mexico are fed up with the different types of violence that are exercised against us in all spaces.
It is not only about the obvious crisis in femicides in Mexico, but also on a daily basis, in homes, in schools, on the street, in jobs. It seems that there is currently no place that is safe for us. ”
Plans for the national strike gained momentum after the brutal murders in February of Ingrid Escamilla, 25, who was killed and mutilated by her partner, and Fatima, a child under seven, who was kidnapped and then found dead wrapped In a plastic bag.
