the street. where it's. time for me ok and i'm ali could be here in the stream today fighting gender based violence later we'll look at how. i don't attention to rape and violence against women we want to hear your thoughts on this issue as always tweet us that e.j. stream or share your comment through our live you to chop. mexican feminists have been expressing their anger over recent allegations that
5:22 pm
mexico city police officers had raped 2 teenage girls in the past week protesters armed with glitter rallied at the city's security headquarters and other sites chanting they don't protect us they rape us earlier this month 4 policemen allegedly raped a 17 year old in a patrol car and in a separate incident a 16 year old said that a police officer wrote to her in a city museum protesters and many on line feel that violence against women is not taken seriously by the state and that even security forces can commit crimes of little consequences mexico city mayor claudia initially called the anti-rape protests a provocation that led to massive criticism online and of viral hash tag demanding justice it's not a provocation syndrome has since apologized and met with women's groups to discuss how authorities can better their response to violence against women so what can be done to change attitudes towards gender based violence in mexico with us to talk
5:23 pm
about this in mexico city and our writer and activist in berkeley california. a human rights lawyer and journalist and gabrielle evergrey guests head of the women secretariat of mexico city she will be speaking to us today with the help of any terror participant maybe just a tiny little delay but i know you will bear with us for that ladies it is good to have you here i am just thinking his cell or this is not the 1st time you've been on the stream this is not the 1st time we talk about gender based violence in mexico it is a major problem what happened with these latest protesters it seemed like everything just bubbled up how did you view it how do you see it. i don't think everything just bubbled out of nowhere i actually. latin american feminism's and mexican feminism's have been organizing for more than 10 years to lead to this point to lead to this point of rage and invisibility station and
5:24 pm
feeling of being in the civilized and marginalized by the government so we started probably in 2012 we had our mexican arab spring along with the student movement we had elections and since then there's been several hashtags i can remember off the top of my head for it or 5 where we denounce gender based violence we denounce harassment even before and i want to speak about this later he too is not her car and i'm and over time we just feel that when you have a system where crimes are not being investigated then puniet is so big and then the other hand the media is just amplifying the government's voice without investigating themselves then we're just caught between a crossroads where our voices are not here to defend us places are not hurt and women are still being killed raped murder and mistreated. in general so i think this is not the 1st time we're not the only one who thinks
5:25 pm
that his that we've got a video coming from and i barbosa she's a student of literature and she also says that this is been simmering for a while now she sent us a video comment have a listen to it tomorrow i will direct this to you. i think it's important to keep in mind that this didn't come from nowhere this women aren't angry and demanding justice only because one girl was raped by for policeman they are protesting because between 20142008 the middle east $8904.00 women were brutally murdered in mexico and nobody did nothing about it in the 1st 4 months of 20191191 mexican women were killed only because they were women and more than 100 of them were children this woman are demanding justice and want to be heard because no one heard them until now about or you can hear the passion in her voice she's angry and rightfully so she mentions the protests you were there
5:26 pm
you were at the protest talked to us about what happened there well 1st i would like to clarify did the mayor hasn't apologized she said she was going to do that but she she hasn't she said something like like i was misunderstood no we don't agree so it we're still waiting for that apology because somehow she is implicitly. saying that we are the better ones they're the ones who were at the demonstration and well yeah being there it was i'll burst or of our anger in our fear the fear that we face every day when we are out there industries or home because this. is sights are happening outside and home too. so it was really really
5:27 pm
powerful being there in the. we're seeing these women destroy everything it was a way to communicate the way we feel and we are really angry because they said it was violent and we think it was not because no one was hurt like really hurt it was just material stuff broken windows in refugees and that was it. i mean it was nothing compared with what we're leaving and what we're facing everyday camera let me just bring you into the conversation because you're looking at these scenes and you are in mexico city you saw this play out with the protesters what was your reaction when you saw this one point what's the reaction of the secretary it for women when they saw this action. meet up with something obviously. we're talking about this for my pleasure the
5:28 pm
history i'm a feminist i'm an activist and i've been show for over 40 years when my colleagues go out into the street to to denounce the violence. you're really in the eye you see myself immediately when i identify myself or them because i did that after 1000 times my own head of government the mayor of mexico city went out into the street a 1000 times when dealing with the many years and in the case particularly of gender violence what is very regrettable down and that you said it very clearly isn't that we're not understanding each other and we have to begin by recognizing that the language because on the 1. 9 am very optimistic with the new generation because that there's a new corps these are new language there is so they're being much more visible than what women in the past and other types of what we did that we went out
5:29 pm
to the streets in the sixty's it was a different time and show. we're not communicating we're not understanding each other and we have to start by acknowledging that because the mayor of mexico city cloudier same boehm when she invited me to be at the helm of this a ministry in december last year the instruction the mandate was number one issue is violence against women and we will do whatever we can do the most important resources will have to be invested in eradicating violence against women and we have a lot of activities and if we have a plenty of time we can talk about what we've done from december 10th date. one of the issue brought up. by the protesters was they were really appreciative of the way that command reacted to approach which was to demonstrate to beat out there
5:30 pm
in the street and to be pretty fun about how angry very all right now. the gender based violence situation in mexico i know you talked about this is your your personal investment in feminism and where you come from but what do you make of the mayor's reaction because that was up setting for the protestors for sure. foresters me that is a boy i wish trying to say we have to be more open to a new language and to a new form of dealing with things and it is very creative but don't we have that to hear them better and we have to start off on the basis of that recognition throughout latin america and i will talk about 2 new symbols. in the green bandana that has been very important because we see ourselves or we identify ourselves
5:31 pm
everyone in mexico city in this new one that was a pink glitter he was well. obviously when you see pink glitter it is not an aggression it is a symbol a symbol of a protester and it is very creative a very interesting. that is new. and yes i said we have had to come closer we have to understand them better because one thing i can say is that deep down the young women that came out to the streets and those of us who are in government. we are equally disturbed or concerned more than worried because we are occupied we're dealing with that issue with many strategies and it would seem that the we're not fighting quite the same thing and it is a huge it is serious problem in communication intergenerational communication this is the way i see it because it said their colleagues here in mexico city the city
5:32 pm
where i live where i have a daughter i have 2 granddaughters 2 young granddaughters and we are women living in the city and we have anger because of that gender based violence that not cheese mo that you fight everywhere in school at home and in public institutions are with the police of course and without officers it is institutional violence. and both our colleagues said those rules are the demonstrators and we are fighting for the same and it would seem it would give the impression that we have opposing positions. his i left. yeah i mean i have a lot of comments 1st of all while i agree that the most appropriate the most appropriate reaction was not to say that it was a pro-creation to who i think maybe years credit she has not use 9 public force of the police to repress the protests have been fact checking i've been doing fact
5:33 pm
checking exercise for the past week and i haven't seen that and that is a huge change from the past administration who are we had a cop. really problematic cop that was engaged in a lot of human rights abuses with protesters because of their oppression of protests and that has been documented as is the december 1st of 2012 so i'm not going to get into that just to her credit she has not used a public force to do that and she has tried to engage in dialogue it's not perfect no minister very angry of course but let's give her that and then secondly here i do think and i have written a lot about this at the burning down of material public stuff which is.
