The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said this Tuesday in his press conference that the groups that keep the facilities of the National Human Rights Commission taken over, have just demands, however, it became a political issue.

« There is a fair demand, but it has already become a political issue and I am not mistaken that it is embraced by conservatism, « said the Mexican president.

He considered that the media « magnify » the fact that feminist groups have occupied the headquarters of the CNDH in the Historic Center of Mexico City, and affirmed that « there is an exaggeration in every sense. »

« This matter is widely publicized because the conservative press, the media, magnify it to harm us …

Now that this situation occurs, they are given a lot of space, time and I believe that this case is being used, there is an exaggeration in every sense.

And I say the same thing again, I don’t believe in violence, I believe in non-violence. I do not believe that violence should be faced with violence, evil must be fought with good, « he said.

López Obrador pointed out that the conservative media has a permanent disinformation campaign. « You can not be removing political slit from the suffering of the people » and it seems that we are living in « time of buzzards », said.

“It is a permanent campaign of misinformation in the press, radio programs on television news, constant constant and it hurts us a lot what happens, the loss of human lives, In other words, you cannot be taking advantage of the suffering of the people, you have to have morals, you have to have ethics, and it seems that we are living in the country in a time of buzzards ”, assured the president.

He noted that they are open to dialogue, But what is experienced in the CNDH « is another type of situation », which he considered prevails.

The Mexican president also mentioned that there is a lot of anger on the part of “conservative groups towards Rosario Stone Ibarra.

“There is a lot of anger, anger, against Rosario Piedra, especially conservative groups for the mother, for Mrs. Rosario, and for his missing brother ”, he declared.

He expressed that « conservatism », by pointing to « the most conservative party in Congress », as a slogan of those who have a difference with Dona Rosario, « They did not want Rosario Piedra to remain as president of the CNDH. »

« It is a matter that comes from long ago, that I am not going to refer here », manifested.

López Obrador in his conference last Monday reiterated that « violence is not fought with violence », when questioned about the protests and the seizure of the facilities of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), of the Historic Center. He assured that their demands should be met, but upon express question, he said that « he did not like seeing Madero outraged. »

« I understand that there is a lot of pain and that the victims of violence have the right to demonstrate, but I don’t think that’s the best way to do it, I don’t think that’s the most appropriate, that is, violence is not the way, Violence cannot be faced with violence, and hopefully it will be protested in another way, with non-violence. Great social fighters have not used violence, neither Gandhi nor Mandela nor Luther King used violence …

Why don’t they go and talk to her (the president of the CNDH), why don’t they talk with her, these attitudes give us pause. And I offer an apology for what I’m saying, but I always say what I think, and of course I did not like to see Madero outraged, no one should be offended like that, vilified, less a fighter for democracy like Madero, « said the Mexican president.

The mothers of families who were demonstrating withdrew since Friday, however, activists and feminist groups warned that they will keep the facilities of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) taken over located in the Historic Center of Mexico City, until the authorities do not respond to their demand for justice in the cases of their missing relatives, victims of femicides or those who suffered sexual abuse.

Since last Wednesday, September 2, around 15 people arrived at the CNDH headquarters, located in República de Cuba 60, for a meeting with the ombudsperson, Rosario Piedra Ibarra.
