In 2021 the City of Madrid decided not to issue an institutional communication against gender violence on November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. To protest this stance (also taken by other city halls in the face of far-right parties which refuse to acknowledge gender violence), on the 25th of November at noon, we gathered at the façade of the City Hall of Madrid bearing the names of the 1,027 women murdered by their partners or exes since 2003. The murderers of these 1,027 women may have taken their lives and silenced their voices… but we will not let them also erase their memory or cause of death.
