Let us honor our dead, protect our living

": about sixty activists drew up on Sunday January 10 in Paris a "

memorial

" for the victims of feminicides, by pasting on a wall the first names of 111 women killed in 2020.

Sarah, Virginie, Grâce, Mathilde, Claudette ... the names of the victims were displayed in black letters on a wall in the 11th arrondissement, located in a covered passage, sheltered from the elements.

"

In 2020, the patriarchy is still killing: 98 conjugal feminicides, 11 sex workers and 2 transgender people killed,

" proclaimed another inscription displayed in front of this memorial.

This figure of 98 feminicides - identified by the associative collective "

Feminicides by companion or ex

", is lower than the 146 officially recorded in 2019. "

But in 2020, there was much more violence

" against women, affirmed to the 'AFP Camille, one of the spokespersons of the “

Colleuses

” movement. According to the Minister for Citizenship, Marlène Schiappa, the online reporting platform for sexual and gender-based violence recorded a 60% increase in calls from victims during the second containment compared to normal, while this increase was 40% during the first containment in spring 2020.

The "

splicers

", perched on stepladders or trash cans to put up their posters and hang bouquets of flowers between the first names of the victims, also stuck slogans such as "

Guilty state, complicit justice

", "

More listened to dead than alive

" , or "

Reforms before we are dead

."

"

The government is not acting enough

" against the scourge of feminicides, summed up Camille, who calls for "

money, resources for associations

", as well as a more rapid deployment of anti-rapprochement bracelets, intended to hold spouses or former spouses at a distance.

These bonding actions, carried out regularly throughout Paris and its suburbs, must also help mobilize citizens, according to her: “

We must not close our eyes: we hear the neighbor screaming, and we dare not get involved. , this is no longer possible!

".
