BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Thousands rallied on Wednesday to join feminist groups and unions protesting the decision of a court that acquitted two men accused of sexually assaulting and killing a woman's daughter. 16 years old.
The groups that organize the demonstrations in several cities are part of "Ni Una Menos", an Argentinian popular movement that mobilized to fight against violence against women and spread in the whole world.
A court in the coastal town of Mar del Plata recently ruled in favor of the two men accused of having abused and killed Lucia Perez. His death in 2016 caused a public outcry.
The decision stated that the girl had had consensual sex with one of the men and that she had died of an overdose. The men were convicted of selling drugs to a minor and sentenced to eight years in prison.
