The creation of an anti-discriminatory institution. This will be the request that the Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation (Movilh) will make to the Government within the framework of the Pride and Equality March, which will take place this Saturday in the Metropolitan region.
In view of the March for Pride and Equality, which will take place this Saturday in the country's capital, the Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation (Movilh) will demand that the Government create anti-discriminatory institutions.
Through a statement, they specified that the -already traditional- march, which will begin at 2:00 p.m. in Plaza Baquedano “will be a protest and celebration&# 8221;.
In this sense, they specified that the scope of the protest will be due to the fact that “the Government has not yet ruled on whether or not it will sponsor the creation of an anti-discriminatory institution, within the framework of the reform to the Zamudio Law that is in the second stage in the National Congress”.
To this, they will add a tribute to the victims of hate crimes, which – according to their data- have increased by 66% compared to last year.
Likewise, Molvilh will celebrate the approval in the country's Congress of the National Diversity Day, which “has been celebrated in Chile since 2006”.
The Pride March will pay tribute to Alejandra González
As part of the march scheduled for this Saturday, the Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation will pay tribute to Alejandra González, the first transsexual woman elected to office public in Latin America and the first LGBTIQA+ person to assume authority after a popular election in Chile.
It should be remembered that González died at the age of 54 on October 5, as a result of a heart failure.
Alejandra González was elected councilor of Lampa for three consecutive terms (from 2004 to 2012).
Finally, from said organization they indicated that the march in question will move “from Plaza Italia along the Alameda, te Ending with a great event at Plaza Los Héroes”.
