Our daily routine is better but we can not fail to see the fight that we have before us. Our community is poorer. Nine months ago, we were deprived of Jacques and we were called to claim again in the streets what we thought we had won. Cry out that the murder of Jacques will not be forgotten. I wish it was the only murder but other murders with racist and sexist features and many feminicides also came to light. We have a lot to do until we can all move, all freely on the streets. ”
