Grief and rejection at the femicide of a woman resident in Horta-Guinardó

Not one more! The male violence which resulted in the murder of a woman in the district of Horta-Guinardó violated the most basic of human rights and highlights how women remain unprotected in the face of this type of violence. A minute’s silence was held at noon today to condemn this latest femicide, which occurred on Sunday, 2 June.

The City Council fervently condemns male violence towards women in general and the latest femicide which occurred on 2 June. To this end, the protocol for mourning established with various institutions and entities has been activated. The protocol is designed to offer a coordinated demonstration of grief and rejection through different communication channels and raise public awareness on the need to put an end to sexist violence. The protocol includes a minute’s silence, held simultaneously today in Plaça de Sant Jaume and in front of each of the city’s district offices.
