A march against sexist violence in Gran Tarajal FMHOY - Fuerteventura Hundreds of people congregated in November on the beach of Gran Tarajal, location of the WOMAD Fuerteventura Festival, in order to pay tribute to the victims of sexist violence in Spain for the year 2015 until that date. This initiative was organised by the feminist association “Señoras en … Fuerteventura”, an unofficial group recently created with women and men who are aware, individually, independently of any other corporation and institution, in order to support from Fuerteventura the “State march against sexist violence” celebrated in Madrid on 7th November. This association organised their participation during WOMAD with an information stand that handed out pamphlets, carried out slogan creation workshops and the initiative was backed up with a replica of “La Instalación Pública de Zapatos Rojos” from the artist Elina Chauvet (1959, Chihuahua, Mexico), which was the first time that is was done on the island. Their participation was completed with the performance of a great crowd of people in complete silence, wearing the number of each woman murdered on their chest (84 up to 7th November) followed by a group of

people carrying signs along Avenida Paco Hierro, who then all fell to the floor together and then carried on with the march until the end. The act was completed with the

reading of the State Manifest against sexist violence, by Lorenza Machín, the singer Amparo Sánchez and Verónica Berriel (sign language interpreter).
