QCOSTARICA – Under the slogan “Gracias Gerardo”, October 18 is the date for a march against acoso callejero (street harassment).
More than 17,000 people (as of this afternoon) have on the official Facebook page for the initiative that they will attend the peaceful protest.
The protest will start at 10:00am in front of the Teatro Nacional in downtown San Jose and will move to the Hospital Calderon Guardia, where the young man has been recuperating since yesterday.
Priscilla Arias, leader of the protest, said: “I think no man has ever done such a visible act, which has generated much impact on the issue of street harassment … we consider to be give honor to a person who was so brave in his act and we’re seeing the consequences that are living for reporting an issue that is every day“.
Thursday afternoon, doctors are being reserved, only saying the next three days are very critical for Gerardo’s recovery.
