(en) Czech, AFED: Mexico: Police dispersed anarcho-feminists with sharp fire, Ongoing femicide and protests against it [machine translation]

Date Sat, 21 Nov 2020 10:32:31 +0200

Twenty-year-old Bianca Alejandrina Lorenzana Alvarado, known as Alexis among friends, was murdered on November 7 in Cancún, Mexico. This is another vile act of femicide. Her quartered body was found on November 9 in two garbage bags. Two more murders of girls have been committed last weekend in Quintana Roo alone. On the same day, a march against femicide was called. Two thousand angry women and girls walked the streets of Cancun, the largest city in Quintana Roo, to the Attorney General's office. The police, the courts and the state as such are becoming the target of anger not only because of the laxity with which they approach the systematic murder of women, but mainly because the repressive elements of the state are all too often the perpetrators themselves.

When the procession arrived in front of the office building, it was already carefully planted with steel barriers and chipboard. The militant protesters began dismantling the barriers, throwing them in front of the building gate and setting them on fire. The walls of the prosecutor's office were spray-painted with calls for justice and the nickname of the last victim, Alexis. During this event, the police opened live fire without warning. This is the state's response to the protest against the mutilation and murder of young girls in a country where 10 acts of femicide are committed every day, a country with the highest levels of impunity for criminals across the continent and missing more than 70,000 people.

About a hundred police officers took part in the operation, and many were injured after their insidious shooting, including two shot journalists. The protest in Cancun is part of a growing feminist movement against patriarchy and femicide throughout Mexico, across America, around the world.
