On September 30, Sali would have turned 21 and a gift for her would have been to uphold the causes she was involved in here.

Freedom and respect for women!
Bring signs demanding justice for Sali and an end to violence against women.

I want to be a woman

And to not be afraid of being one
And not to be murdered for being one

I am a woman without being one

I am a woman when I hide
When I plan how to defend myself
I am a woman when they persecute me
I am a woman when they kill me
I am a woman when they rape me

For being a women they stare at and accost me

I am a woman without being one

I am a woman building
I am a woman and here I am
Ready for the war they've declared
I am a woman and that is my resistance
Because I did not wish to be born in this trench, but here I've found myself

I am a woman and I have another cause
Never on my knees
Never defeated
Giving live for this right, the natural right of being a woman

The hate planted in my being for not understanding the hate that persecutes me

Resisting woman
Fighting woman
Woman that keeps fighting

I've thrown every word in the trash that does not define me as I wish to define myself, every whisper that harasses me in the streets, every images that imposes itself on me and every duty they assign me. And in spite of having won, they keep killing me, keep accosting me...

Regardless I am ready...
I will not accept your war
I will not accept the terror you sow in my heart
I will not accept your violence
And I will not accept my own death

I remain with my FREEDOM, with my decision to keep being a woman and not to die for being one.

I am a woman and want to keep being a woman

I've died with each murdered woman,
And I've lived in each of them that live, in each of them that struggle.

I will continue being the carrier of live and if you turn around to see me,
I am your mother...

Este dia 30 de septiembre, Sali estaria cumpliendo 21 anos de edad y un regalo para ella seria enarbolar las causas por las cuales ella se encontraba aqui.
Libertad y respeto para las mujeres!
Trae pancartas exigiendo justicia para Sali y no mas violencia para las mujeres etc.

Quiero ser mujer:

Y no tener miedo de serlo
Y no ser asesinada por ello

Soy mujer pero sin serlo

Soy mujer a la hora de esconderme
A la hora de planear defenderme
Soy mujer cuando me persiguen
Soy mujer cuando me matan
Soy mujer cuando me ultrajan

Por ser mujer me miran y acosan

Soy mujer sin serlo

Soy mujer construyendo
Soy mujer y aqui estoy
Lista para la guerra que me han declarado
Soy mujer y esta es mi resistencia
Por que no quise nacer en esta trinchera, pero aqui me encuentro

Soy mujer y tengo otra causa
Nunca arrodillada
Nunca rendida
Dando la vida por ese derecho, el derecho natural de ser mujer.

El odio sembrado en mi ser por no entender el odio que me persigue.

Mujer resiste
Mujer lucha
Mujer sigue luchando

He tirado a la basura cada palabra que define mi persona sin que yo quiera serlo, cada murmullo que me acosa en las calles, cada apariencia que me imponen y cada funcion que me asignan. Y a pesar de haber ganado, me siguen matando, me siguen acosando...

Apesar de estar lista...
No tomare para mi su guerra,
No tomare su terror que siembran en mi corazon,
No tomare su violencia,
Y no tomare mi propia muerte

Me quedo con mi LIBERTAD, con mi decision de seguir siendo mujer y no morir por serlo.

Soy mujer y quiero seguir siendo mujer

He muerto en cada mujer asesinada,
Y he vivido en cada una de las que viven, en cada una de las que luchan.

Sigo siendo la portadora de la vida y si volteas a verme,
Soy tu madre...
