Nahomi Rodriquez, a 19-year-old woman, disappeared in July 2016 after her late shift at a McDonald’s in a town nearby here. Police just found her body dumped in a canal, the victim of homicide.
When women or children are kidnapped, disappeared, tortured, murdered, it is understood as personal crime, a matter of deranged sexual pathology. It is a political crime deriving from the oppression of women.
For every person who dies from violence, including murder, forcible disappearance, in the gulags of injustice & tyranny, suicide (often a political act against oppression), the world shifts a little on its axis & life is forever off-kilter for those who grieve.
Our condolences to the family of Nahomi. May she Rest In Peace. May the police hunt down the perpetrator & bring him to justice.
