Tourists found dead. Video cameras filming under skirts. An attempt to take off a woman's underwear mid-stride. And a "pandemic" of femicide — all in Mexico.

For these reasons and many others, a group of women in Mexico is organizing a state-wide day of action against sexual violence.

Nos Queremos Vivas, "we want to stay alive," will set off a march through the State of Mexico on April 24. Several women's rights groups have signed on to the campaign, many via images shared on social media with the hashtag #24A or #NosQueremosVivas.

The graphics depict street harassment and mourn murdered women — Al Jazeera reported last year that the daily rate is six — as well as ask women to come forward if they're attacked. Most of all, they reveal the state of women's lives in the state, which includes sprawling Mexico City.

In this one, the first man lets out a wolf whistle. The second says, "You look delicious." The third, "I'd tear you in half." Then the last man says, "Feminazis will raise allegations over anything."

"Harassment is not a compliment. Denounce the pig!"

This illustration refers to victim-blaming aimed at women who have been killed: "She was a whore," "She dressed provocatively," "What was she doing out at those hours?"

"On my way home, I want to be free, not brave."

"One day, I won't be scared to walk down the street. I won't be scared to die because of your machismo."

A story from Mexican news site Animal Politico citing a survey that says 44 percent of women in Mexico have suffered domestic violence.

"If you stand up for yourself, you stand up for us all."

"When the blood comes from an abused woman, the wound is everyone's."

And this comic, which touches on several of Mexico's recent incidents of gender violence: "Los Porkys de Costa de Oro," a group of men involved in a sexual assault case; reporter Andrea Noel's story; harassment on public transportation; femicide and more.
