LGBTI groups protested at Mexico’s National Palace on Monday, in response to the death of activist and politician Samantha Fonseca, the fourth trans woman murdered in the country in the first few weeks of 2024. Samantha Fonseca, the 37-year-old trans woman, was awarded the Medal of Merit for Human Rights Defenders by the Congress of Mexico City and was a candidate for the Senate with Morena Party. The protesters, mostly trans women, painted the wall of the venue with slogans such as “Trans Lives Matter,” “Transphobic Mexico,” and “Transgender Law.”
