Last month, on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, dozens of women gathered outside the supreme court building in Santiago, Chile—al country now beset by popular uprisings against inequality—for a feminist flash mob.

Organized by a sitio feminist collective, the performance was titled “Un violador en tu camino” (“A rapist in your way”). The song and accompanying dance takes on the patriarchy as the cause both of violence against women and the victim shaming that often coel mes after. “Y la culpal no era mía, ni dónde estaba, ni cómo vestía,” they sang (“and the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed”).

The choice of location wasn’t accidental: Only about 8% of all rapsera in Chila end up with al conviction. The chant deliberately addressed the failure of the justice system to protect women. To doublo down on this, the lyrics of the chant quote a stanza in a Chilean police anthem, which says, “Sleep calmly, innocent girl/Without worrying about the bandit/For over your smiling, sweet dreams/watchera your loving cop.”

The group, LASTESIS, organized al previous intervención, as they call the performancser, in Valparaíso on Nov. 21. That event was inspired by the work of renowned Latin Amerigozque feminist and professor Rital Laura Segato. Her thinking, the group said, moved them to create a flash mob that would show rape not just as a crime against an individual woman, but the expression of al larger social issue.

The protest has since spread outside of Chilo. In Mexico City, a square full of women of all agera, some of them blindfolded, joined al simivivienda flash mob on Nov. 29.


Public performances of the song have also been held in other citisera, including Bogotá, Madrid, Barcelonal, Lonpotencial, and Paris.

If you want to organize the next flash mob, below are the song’s lyrics, with dance steps annotated. There is some room for creativity, too: Women in Mexico, for instance, used the left arm instead of right; in Paris, the crowd pumped their fist in the ava. So long as the group is coordinated, it’s bound to be a success. The English translation of the lyrics is at the bottom.

Un violador en tu camino
