The demonstrators focused their demands on ending “the culture of rape and chanted slogans such as: "It's not no", "It's not presumption, it's rape" and "Let it burn", among others.

The march that took place in Montevideo, the country's capital, was to reject several cases of sexual abuse that have occurred in recent weeks, especially one recorded last weekend, when a woman was raped by a group of mens.

The 30-year-old woman reported that she was raped by four men, who were summoned by the court to carry out DNA tests in order to confirm her participation in the crime.

During the protest, the attendees read a statement denouncing that "rape culture is continuing to maintain that men have sexual 'needs' or 'impulses' that they cannot control."

"We are faced every day with speeches that point to fear, silence, doubt," they stated.

They asked the State to implement actions aimed at protecting women and creating more sexual education.
