Christina Burneo on abortion rights in Ecuador

A snapshot of the speakers at the panel

Christina Burneo’s panel on abortion rights in ecuador

The symposium has started and guest speakers, panelists and singers are starting their performances and dialogues!

Above is one guest speaker from Ecuador, Christina Burneo, who is speaking about the fight for abortion rights in Ecuador. She testified as an expert witness for a 19 year old who was prosecuted under the suspicion that she had an illegal abortion. There was a long process of gathering evidence from her phone, location and purchases and while this case was won, it is still only one battle won in the war towards reproductive freedom. This is only one example of the activism from the wonderful feminists in this feminista hip hop encuentro among many efforts with many causes.
