Peru: national mobilisation demands an end to violence against women

The National Association of Journalists of Peru (ANP) led by its general secretary and IFJ Executive Committeee member Zuliana Láinez, took part in a huge mobilisation this Saturday to demand an end to the violence suffered by women.

Under the slogan “Touch one of us, you touch us all”, thousands of protestors and trade unionists of the ANP come from all over the country to express their anger about cases in which the victims have been denied justice and to denounce the high toll of femicides in Peru.

“What is clear for the ANP is that this is not the end but the beginning of a struggle which will continue to grow” said Lainez. “We have presented a programme of legislative reforms, changes to the system of administration of justice and ways to ensure media do not contribute to the problem by promoting the stereotypes of a macho society.”
