Protester: “People suffer daily. They assault us, they rob from us, they kidnap us, they rape us, they kill us and the authorities don’t even care. I beg you, have a little empathy, put yourselves in our shoes. They’re killing us, it hurts us, you don’t even realize, make laws that are just. Death to the rapists, there’s no other way.”
