Thousands of Mexicans protested on Sunday in various marches in the capital to demand justice for the death of 18-year-old law student Debanhi Escobar in Nuevo León amid a wave of murders and disappearances of women.

Some contingents marched from the Bosque de Chapultepec to the Angel of Independence, while hundreds of others protested from the Monument of the Revolution and dozens more from the "antimonument" against gender violence in the Juarez Hemicycle.

In addition to civil society groups, citizens such as Alba González joined one of the marches to challenge the actions of the country's authorities.
