Today I witnessed intense clashes prompted by police attacks against a peaceful march of tens of thousands for the #MadresDeAbril. The march was intended to honor the mothers who have lost children during the protests that began April 18th and have resulted in up to 90 deaths.
The mood was festive with families and children gathered. Someone climbed the giant flagpole at the rotunda and managed to bring the flag down to half mast. Everything seemed calm until shots rang out and panic swept the crowds.
I witnessed at least one gunshot victim being rushed away from the scene and heard of multiple others at other locations where the march was attacked. I am told that some of those who were shotndid not survive.
