The protesters biked to the Interior Ministry and the National Palace of Culture, where they displayed banners that read, "Girls can't be touched" and "the State doesn't take care of us."
During the demonstration, which was called by the Tejiendonos, Urbanos, and Coincidir feminist movements, they shouted, "We just want to play in peace. We don't want to be afraid of getting killed."
The Guatemalan girls also demanded justice for the murder of 8-year-old Shanon Figueroa, whose body was found on Feb. 10, two days after she disappeared while playing on her bike outside her home in the Peten Department. The autopsy revealed that she was beaten and strangled.
