They shot a woman in front of her partner and her children

After the sexual assault of a 20-year-old Danish tourist in the Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, more than 200 women protested in San José against acts of violence against women. “The women of this country say no to sexist and patriarchal violence that violates our rights. That is why our voice is raised, for all those who can no longer be here,” said María Fernanda Quesada, one of the women who participated in the protest called by the Brujas Feministas CR collective. “There are women who have already been killed and are no longer with us,” added Quesada. The protesters, mostly dressed in purple -associated with the feminist struggle-, marched with banners and flags through the streets of San José, and stopped in front of the headquarters of Congress and the Supreme Court of Justice. “Not one less, long live we love each other!” and “don’t be indifferent!” they chanted. In parallel, the United Talamanca spoke in Puerto Viejo, where the young Danish woman was sexually assaulted by several men on the night of January 5 on a local beach, after boarding an informal transport vehicle.
