Sandra Cortez, from the Marea Verde collective, invited all those women who wish to participate in the commemoration of the Day of the Dead to remember the victims of femicide, not only from Quintana Roo but from around the country, which this year already number 724.

The activist said that the group will provide the search sheets for women as missing or found dead.
“We want to raise awareness and make visible the magnitude of the femicides in the country and in Quintana Roo, we are going to hold this peaceful demonstration with hygiene measures and healthy distance as it will be held throughout the country to make this pandemic of violence visible ”, she concluded.
