Argentinian Women Strip Unclad In Screaming Protest Against Violence (Photos)


Dozens of feminists stripped Unclad outside a president's palace as they held a screaming protest to call for an end to violence against women.

More than 100 protesters held the head-turning demonstration after they marched to a public square outside Argentinian President Mauricio Macri's residence.

After taking off their clothes in front stunned onlookers in Buenos Aires the group formed a pile of
bodies and then screamed angrily en masse.

It was all part of a 'Femicide is Genocide' protest against gender-based violence, organised by a group called Artistic Force of Communicative Shock (FACC).

The women were performing a dramatisation as a prelude to the next march of the feminist collective NiUnaMenos (Not One Fewer) to be held on Saturday.

In all, 120 women undressed completely in the Plaza de Mayo in front of the president's home, the country's parliament and its highest court.

The group used the tactic to demand greater protection for the victims of gender-based violence, which is on the rise in Argentina.

According to official figures, so far this year femicide has been committed on average once every 25 hours in Argentina.

On social networks, the hashtag 'FemicidioEsGenocidio' quickly went viral, showing hundreds of photos and videos of the protest.

Protester Claudia Acuna wrote on Twitter: "We represent them all... and we will always exist.

Describing emotional scenes at the protest, she added: "Older ladies crying because in their time they could not speak aloud of it, men shocked by the cruelty of these times. I'll take that."
