More than a million people marched in 30 states for women, life, and peace in Mexico during the weekend of Oct. 8–9.
The organizers of the nationwide marches told ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language sister news agency, that an estimated 200,000 people marched in Mexico City alone to the Angel of Independence, a monument to national independence in the middle of a large roundabout of a major thoroughfare in the downtown.
The marches, held in a joyful and peaceful atmosphere, took place in cities in 30 states “in favor of the causes of women, the protection of human life, and for peace in Mexico.”
“I am marching on behalf of millions of women; I come with all my heart, I come for my family, for my friends, for my country,” said Laura, one of the participants.
