Many people this Saturday, June 5 in Metz Borny where a march was held in support of the woman victim of an attempted feminicide last Thursday in Metz Borny.
It was 10 a.m. this morning when many people gathered in front of the Metz-Borny district town hall to support Sevgi, the woman who was the victim of an attempted feminicide in Metz-Borny last Thursday. The crowd observed a minute of silence at the scene of the assault before heading to the Music Box (BAM). In the demonstration we could see banners with these words: “Support for Sevgi”, “Stop feminicides and violence against women” or “Never again”.
