Civil society organizations call for citizens to dress in mourning in national protest against the many femicides recorded in the Dominican Republic, a call for integration into "The days of mourning" to support the reduction of femicides that have taken place daily, to condemn the crime against women. Mourning, dress in black, white or gray ties demanding the prevention of this scourge. In recent weeks have occurred about two murders a day and it will pass without showing the measures to stop these tragedies.
