Dozens of women protested on Tuesday about the murder of Isabel Cabanillas, a 26-year-old plastic activist and artist, and accused the Chihuahua authorities of cover-up.
The collectives went to facilities at Casa Chihuahua in Mexico City to demand that state authorities have not given clear information on the case, so they called for clarification of the murder.
“We are very hurt by what happens in Ciudad Juarez, we are hurt by war. Armando Cabada has tried to erase the femicides that occur, we denounce him as an accomplice,” they said of the mayor of Juarez.”
