Women’s Day – a time for commemorations this year


For International Women’s Day this year, with the Women’s Ministry in Tierra Nueva 1 and 2 and the Multi-Sector Group, we went to a mass and activities to commemorate the one year anniversary of the tragedy at the state-run “safe house” Hogar Seguro in which 41 young women were killed and 15 more survived the horror.

The mass also marked the life of Marco Antonio Molina Thiessen, a 14-year-old boy who was disappeared by the military in 1981 after his sister managed to escape from detention. The historic trial to hold 5 members of the military accountable for his disappearance, as well as the kidnapping, sexual assault and torture of his sister, started this month.
