Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador attacked a number of Western media outlets, accusing them of “supporting violent demonstrators.”
“These media represent the interests of companies that are not satisfied with the policies of the current government … I am amazed at the apparent provocation through these media,” the Mexican president said during a press conference.
He added, “These media organizations represent companies involved in the plunder of Mexico in the neoliberal period and they are very upset that theft is no longer allowed,” considering that “protests against the government under the banner of feminism are a new phenomenon, although in reality all this is provoked by conservatives who have been affected.” Their interests and privileges. “
On Monday, Mexico City witnessed a solidarity march for women’s equal rights and liberation. The authorities in the capital fenced buildings and historical monuments to protect them from vandalism, but some women set fire to them and were exposed to some police.
Feminist groups have taken to the streets of Mexico to demand an end to murders and violations against women, in a country where about 10 women are killed every day.
The march resulted in the injury of 62 policemen and 19 civilians. Nine police officers and one civilian were taken to hospital, and they are in stable condition.
