Mexico's Femicide - No End in Sight (TeleSUR English)

Dozens of women gathered outside the Mexican attorney general’s office Tuesday to protest the spiraling the numbers of femicides in the State of Mexico.

The protesters' leaders, federal lawmaker Alicia Barrientos and Morena candidate for the Delfina Gomez, demanded the state attorney’s office and state government release a report explaining what the government has done to prevent the rising number of femicides since a gender alert was declared in 2015.

The protesters also want the gender alert to be extended from the initial 11 municipalities to the 125 municipalities across the state.

“We demand justice and say enough is enough,” said Gomez.

According to Gomez, urgent action is needed to tackle the alarming crisis of femicides in the state.

"We are indignant with the growing gender violence that has developed under of the cover of governments that minimize femicides. Not one less!"

... The State of Mexico has the highest number of femicides in Mexico.
