This week did not end well for the administration headed by Ale Gutiérrez in León, first the arbitrary arrests that a group of trans women have already brought before Human Rights, and then the repression of a cyclist for demonstrating with a simple blanket on Citizen Wednesday to demand safe roads.
The Mayoress reacted and offered a public apology for both cases yesterday in a City Council session. It is a step to recognize that there is much to do in respect of human rights. What is urgent are measures to guarantee that it does not happen again.
DO NOT FORGET
The Municipality seems not to learn. In August 2020 -in the government of Héctor López, but with the same Secretary of Public Security, Mario Bravo-, we made headlines for the arbitrary detention of 22 women who were protesting police abuse.
IRAPUATO AND 2024
When questioning yesterday the mayoress of Irapuato, Lorena Alfaro, about the alternative of the Secretary of State Health, Daniel Díaz Martínez, as a candidate for the strawberry mayor’s office in 2024, she preferred to keep her comment and limited herself to answering: “Nothing”.
DANIEL AND LORRAINE
The doctor recently joined Acción Nacional and is one of the best positioned state officials abroad, which encourages him to raise his hand for a popularly elected position. It’s still early but re-election is an option for Lorena, so maybe Daniel stirring up the hornet’s nest isn’t funny to her, but she’s not arguing.
ANNA VS. ARIADNE
On behalf of the PAN bench in San Lázaro, the Leonese federal deputy, Ana Esquivel Arrona, intervened in the rostrum to establish the position of her party before the appearance of the head of the Welfare Secretariat, Ariadna Montiel, on the occasion of the gloss of the IV Government Report of the President of the Republic.
And so he opened: “You are the third person in charge of the Welfare Secretariat so far in this administration, with so many changes and the institutional weakening, hallmark of this Government, Mexican men and women have not been certain of the exercise of their social rights and to improve their quality of life”.
The PAN member recalled that, according to Coneval, the population in poverty from 2018 to 2020 grew from 51.9 to 55.7 million people and the population in extreme poverty from 8.7 to 10.8 million. She accused the failure of a disjointed social policy and the delivery of direct support that also benefits those who have the most.
The Morenista deputy Hades Aguilar Castillo proposed in the Congressional rostrum that, with the purpose of today commemorating the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the Legislative Palace should be illuminated in orange. She argued that the largest number of homicides against women are concentrated here.
I DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE DID
His proposal was of obvious resolution, that is to say, that yesterday they had to vote if it was discussed or not. But when the deputy Martín López Camacho was calling for such a vote, the Morenista deputy interrupted him and said that she was withdrawing the obvious resolution, which happened.
Big mistake by Aguilar Castillo, because then his proposal was turned over to the Commission for Gender Equality, which implied that it was going to be dealt with in a month or so, when he no longer had any cases, because the lighting had to be done today that It is the day to commemorate.
But, in a gesture of goodwill, Martín López said that this procedure was not necessary and gave instructions to the General Secretariat so that the Legislative House be lit in orange for the feminist commemoration.
SILVANO, THE TOUR
Yesterday, the former governor of Michoacán and presidential hopeful of the dying PRD, Silvano Aureoles, began his three-day tour of the state in Celaya and Irapuato.
HARD AGAINST AMLO
Silvano maintains his frontal speech against the 4T and López Obrador himself. He reiterated that Morena won the governorship of Michoacán with the participation of organized crime. He accused AMLO of corrupting the Armed Forces, using the institutions to persecute opponents and wanting to control the electoral bodies.
Arturo Bravo, a member of the State Executive Directorate, pointed out that nobody notified them of the tour and they do not accompany it, since they do not have pre-candidates. “We demarcate the Party of the Democratic Revolution in Guanajuato, from any call and participation on behalf of the PRD in the events of Silvano A. in the state.” wow.
Prosecutor and the requirement to search
At the request of the Ministry of the Interior, the State Attorney General, Carlos Zamarripa Aguirre, met yesterday with 12 representatives of disappeared persons derived from 10 Urgent Actions that were issued by the UN Committee against Enforced Disappearances (CED). The purpose was to follow up on the demand for investigation and search of these people.
The Platform for Peace reported that it was agreed to hold meetings to review each of the active cases before the CED with the presence of the Prosecutor.
The UN-DH, the State Commission for Comprehensive Assistance to Victims, the Platform participated in the meeting as a companion for 8 of the 10 cases and the Project for Disappeared Women of Guanajuato, for the other two cases.
