Sonora, Mexico.- A Twitter user denounced the femicide of his 13-year-old niece, which occurred in his own home in Nogales, Sonora. The crime sparked outrage from netizens, who placed the hashtag #JusiticiaParaAnaPaola to demand action against those responsible.
They broke into my cousin’s house in Nogales. They raped and killed my 13-year-old niece. Any reflection on solidarity, citizenship and the economy is all the more so. Today Mexico, government and world, don’t count on me. Go to the chinganda.

We are all concerned about the #COVIDー19mx however we must not forget that sexist violence does not stop and every day 10 women are still murdered in this country. Paola was only 13 years old, a life ahead of her. #JusticiaParaAnaPaola pic.twitter.com/bXItDfjCBe
