    Demo organiser accuses government of ignoring the problem

    THOUSANDS of women in Argentina took part in mass demonstrations at the weekend against the staggering number of women being murdered in their country and throughout the continent.

    The third annual #NiUnaMenos (Not one more woman) protests took place on Saturday, the day after 46-year-old Ana Rosa Barrera was found dead in the city of Alta Gracia, after reportedly being murdered by her partner.

    The largest demonstration was in Buenos Aires, where protest organiser Ana Maria Vazquet Duplat explained to a rally in the city’s Congress Square that, since the first protests began in 2015, “the number of femicide deaths has only worsened.”

    She added that, this year, “while the state dismantles and withdraws funding for programmes aimed at combating violence against women, a woman is killed every 18 hours.”

    Ms Vazquet emphasised that the Argentinian state is not just absent but deliberately “turning its back on the problem” and using the police to “persecute and suppress demonstrators.”

    “We are faced with a state that is responsible not by omission but through its direct action against our rights,” she said.

    A key demand of the march was the release of Milagro Sala, an indigenous leader of the Tupac Amaru neighbourhood association, who was arrested on January 16 in Jujuy on suspicion of stealing state funds.

    Ms Sala contests the allegations, declaring that racism played a key role in her detention, her subjection to torture and receipt of death threats. She blames the corporate media for misrepresenting her and her people’s struggle.

    Many human rights advocates have denounced her arrest and she has received support from Pope Francis, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and Amnesty International.

    The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (Alba), which unites progressive movements across Latin America, strongly condemned the violence that affects women every day and urged a massive mobilisation for #NiUnaMenos events across the continent.

    “Being a woman is to live constantly in a time of war,” Alba commented, recalling women’s massive mobilisations throughout the continent over the past two years to fight for their right to life and safety.

    US VICE-PRESIDENT Mike Pence praised Argentinian President Mauricio Macri’s “bold reform agenda” of job cuts and fuel price rises on his trip to Buenos Aires on Tuesday.

    “When Latin America embraces economic reforms, Latin America succeeds and so does the United States,” he said.

    He praised Mr Macri’s pro-business policies, reversing years of social spending and rejection of US-based “vulture funds” under his predecessors.

    “Argentina in many ways is an inspiration across this hemisphere and across the wider world.”

    Following his election in November 2015, Mr Macri ordered mass redundancies in both the public and private sectors and raised utility bills — sparking major strikes and protests across the country.

    Mr Pence had just flown in from Colombia, where he blamed Venezuela’s socialist government for the economic crisis and months of violent unrest there.

    But Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos joined other regional leaders in rejecting US President Donald Trump’s threat of military intervention in Venezuela.
