Today we join thousands of Argentinians in the streets to claim for social justice, better work conditions and education for all
#SocialJustice #Protests #MarchaFederal

A massive International Women’s Day march paralysed traffic in the Argentinian capital on 8 March, as tens of thousands of women gathered before the congress building in Buenos Aires. A large number wore green bandanas around their necks – the symbol of support for decriminalisation.

Pro-choice supporters have steadily risen in number since 2015, when protests began against gender violence in Argentina, which is estimated to claim the life of one woman every 30 hours.
Rallying around the Ni una menos motto (“Not one less”, meaning no more women should be lost to male violence), the protests have become impossible for politicians to ignore.

“Many women who didn’t consider themselves feminists joined the #NiUnaMenos rallies and realised that the ban on abortion, which results in so many deaths of young women undergoing illegal abortions, is also a major issue,” says Pichot.
