Attacks on symbols of the struggle for women’s equality, in the form of murals or other tributes, have marked this 8M. The most representative and the one that seems to have triggered the vandalization of others in Getafe, Alcalá de Henares, Gandía or Huelva, is located in the Madrid neighborhood of Ciudad Lineal. It had been going unnoticed for two years until the representation of Vox in the plenary session of the District Board took forward a vote, with the support of PP and Citizens, to be erased due to “his political message”. The neighbors defended it, which caused Ciudadanos, who governs the Board, to change their vote and the mural was saved. But on March 8 appeared covered in black paint.
The 8M of the new normal: the revolution goes inside but yearns to take to the streets again
