Only Femicide

“The woman, Ingrid Escamilla, 25, was stabbed, skinned and disemboweled…”

“Look, I don’t want the topic to be only femicide… This issue has been manipulated a lot in the media… I ask feminists, with all due respect, not to paint the doors, the walls. We are working so that there are no femicides… That is why the participation of citizens is important. If there hadn’t been a Revolution, we wouldn’t have the 1917 Constitution.” (President Andrés Manuel López Obrador)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
