Spain: 'Justice for women' — Thousands march against gender violence in Madrid

Thousands of people took to the streets of central Madrid, Saturday, to protest against feminicides and other forms of violence against women in occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Protesters chanted as they marched through the city, holding signs reading «We are the cries of those who are not here anymore» and «I will fight today because I do not... Еще want to see you die tomorrow.» The protest comes amid the ongoing trial against five men (la manada') who are accused of raping a woman in the Pamplona 'running of the bulls' festival this year. The Pack or «La Manada» case has attracted a great deal of public attention. Defence lawyers have been accused of victim blaming. Gender-based violence is a pressing issue in Spain. According to Madrid's gender violence department, at least 45 women have been killed in Spain by their partners or ex-partners in 2017.
