Hundreds of Mexican women protest police rape of teenager Aug 18, 2019 0 429 12345 Mexico City: Hundreds of women demanding protection from Mexico City’s police force took to the streets Friday after a number of high-profile sexual assault cases involving serving officers. To shouts of “I do believe you!” and “My friends protect me, you don’t,” the initially peaceful rally ended with some participants lighting a fire on the second floor of a police building and vandalizing a bus station. The protesters also sprayed graffiti on the capital’s Independence Monument, adorning the base of the stone edifice with the slogan “damned pigs!” Two reports of attacks on women this month have sparked outrage and bitter recriminations against the city’s police force.
