  • Judge says Mexico City law denies right to free speech and protest

    A federal judge in Mexico recently questioned a Mexico City statute that supposedly protects a citizen's right to free movement. However, the local law says that 48-hour notice on marches must be given and stipulates that major thoroughfares may not be used for demonstrations. The judge ruled that three articles of the law deny people's constitutional rights. Activists hope that this decision will remind other state and local governments that the rights to free speech, movement, assembly and protest are guaranteed by the Constitution of Mexico.

Security and police reinforcements arrive on the outskirts of Mexico City, in the city of Nezahualcoyotl. They battle against drug-related violence, which is starting to affect the sprawling capital. Full story: Mexico has sent police and security reinforcements to patrol a suburb of Mexico City for the first time. This is to combat a rise in drug-related violence that is beginning to affect the capital. From late Wednesday (September 19), a combined force of around 1,000 soldiers, federal police and local police took to the streets of Nezahualcoyotl on Mexico City's eastern flank. This area has suffered from a dispute between two rival drug cartels. President Felipe Calderon's fight against drug gangs has overshadowed his administration. The arrangement in Nezahualcoyotl brings the conflict into the home state of his successor, Enrique Pena Nieto, who will take office in December. Local resident Gerardo welcomed the presence of police reinforcements and soldiers. [Gerardo, Resident of Nezahualcoyotl]: "It was time that they did it. There is too much insecurity. We aren't safe in our own home or in our cars. It was fair to do this and now we will see if it really is a solution or will make it worse as we have seen in a large part of the country." The local government's request for troops follows a murder which occurred last weekend, of Jaime Serrano, a local state congressman and member of Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Another Nezahualcoyotl resident said he hoped the security would be enforced throughout the area. [Rafael, Resident of Nezahualcoyotl]: "More surveillance, surveillance in all streets because sometimes they are just in avenues and not in the streets." Security experts say that the violence in Nezahualcoyoti is due to a fight between the Zetas and La Familia drug cartels, for control of a growing market for narcotics and illegal goods. Turf wars between drug gangs and clashes with security forces have killed around 60 thousand people over the past six years. Mexico City and its immediate surroundings have been among the least affected areas. However, recent months have seen drug-related violence creep up in Mexico City, and the neighbouring State of Mexico, where just over half of the population of the capital's urban area live.

President Donald Trump signs his first executive order in the Oval Office of the White House on Friday. Trump signed the confirmations of Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and an executive order requiring federal agencies to ease the economic burden of the Affordable Care Act until it is repealed. C-SPAN Along with two other executive actions, President Donald Trump reinstated the Mexico City abortion rules on Monday, which was rescinded by former President Barack Obama exactly eight years ago. Though Trump has had controversial clashes with Mexico over his border wall policy, this executive action actually has nothing to do with Mexico, despite its name. It’s also not unique to Trump — it’s a policy that gets rescinded or reinstated every time the presidency switches from Democrat to Republican, or vice versa. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called Trump’s action the end of “the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions overseas.” Analysis: Supreme Court And Abortion Adam Liptak, The Times’ Supreme Court reporter, breaks down the arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which could reverse constitutional standards on abortion. New York Times Here are a few facts about the Mexico City Policy: It requires foreign non-governmental organizations to not provide or promote abortion services if they receive funds from the U.S. government. Specifically, the funds would come from the United States Agency for International Development, and abortion cannot be presented as a “method of family planning.” Promoting abortion services includes work such as counseling for women that includes language on abortions. The policy was named for Mexico City because it was announced at the United Nations International Conference on Population in that location. It was signed into law by former President Ronald Reagan and went into effect in 1985. The policy stayed in effect until 1993, when it was rescinded by former President Bill Clinton. Since then, it has been reinstated by every Republican president and rescinded by every Democratic president within their first few days in office. Obama rescinded it exactly eight years ago, on Jan. 23, 2009. Obama’s statement when he repealed the policy read, in part, “It is clear that the provisions of the Mexico City Policy are unnecessarily broad and unwarranted under current law, and for the past eight years, they have undermined efforts to promote safe and effective voluntary family planning in developing countries. For these reasons, it is right for us to rescind this policy and restore critical efforts to protect and empower women and promote global economic development.” The presidents previous to Obama who took actions on the policy signed them on Jan. 22 of their respective years, which is the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. Some noted in 2009 that Obama likely waited a day on purpose due to the anniversary, though Obama never confirmed or denied that. The order does provide exceptions in cases of rape, incest or life-threatening conditions. Critics of the policy refer to it as the “Global Gag Rule,” and the U.S. has been unsuccessfully sued over the policy by those who say it limits freedom of speech. The policy creates legal problems for organizations in certain countries, such as South Africa, where the groups are legally required to inform a woman seeking an abortion of her rights and refer her to a facility that would perform an abortion.

Pan of gay marriage supporters celebrating court's decision and chanting, UPSOUND (Spanish): "Yes we could!" 11. Mid of supporters chanting 12. Supporters of gay marriage chanting, UPSOUND (Spanish): "Without sexual freedom, there is no political freedom!" STORYLINE The Mexican Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that a law allowing same-sex marriages in Mexico City is constitutional, rejecting an appeal by federal prosecutors who argued it violated the charter's guarantees to protect the family. The justices' 8-2 ruling handed a legal victory to hundreds of same-sex couples who have been married in Mexico's capital since the ground breaking law took effect March 4. It was the first such legislation in Latin America, when it was approved six months ago. The justices have not yet determined the scope of their 8-2 ruling, however, saying they still need to decide whether it will affect states outside of the capital. The court must also still rule on the constitutionality of a provision of the Mexico City law that lets same-sex couples adopt children. It is expected to address that issue on Monday. Justices who voted on the majority side stressed that while Mexico's constitution enshrines protection for families, it does not define what a "family" is. "It does not appear to me to be unconstitutional," Justice Jose Gudino said during Thursday's session. President of Supreme Court, Justice Guillermo Ortiz, who argued against the law, said that "no compromises can be made against what the institution of marriage dictates, which is, at its essence, the procreation of the species, and the lasting union of the parents." But another judge, Jose Fernando Franco, argued that "procreation is not an essential element of marriage." Outside the court, supporters of same sex marriage reacted with jubilation to the news. Meanwhile, Reverend Hugo Valdemar, the spokesman for Mexico City's Roman Catholic Archdiocese, said the archdiocese regretted the ruling because "it affects the fundamental nucleus of the family." Federal prosecutors had cited an article in Mexico's constitution that suggests, but does not state, that families are constituted by men, women and children. The article states: "Men and women are equal before the law. This protects the organisation and development of the family." The justices who voted to uphold the law differed in their reasons why: Some stressed the constitution's protection of an individual's right to choose a marriage partner, and others the right of local legislatures to enact laws governing the issue. Justice Luis Aguilar Morales argued against framing the ruling around the individual rights issue, something that might force other states to adopt similar measures. The issue will apparently be worked out in subsequent discussion and the writing of the final ruling. Argentina became the first country in Latin America to legalise marriage for same-sex couples with a law approved in July.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Rudolf Giuliani, former New York City mayor: "To evaluate the criminal justice system and then to make recommendations, the secretary (Mexico Police Commissioner) and of course the people in the government of Mexico City who are responsible for the criminal justice system have to decide which recommendations, which recommendations fit and which ones don't and to vary them. So we don't want to create that impression, nor do we in any way have any kind of operational role. We don't, we are consultants. Our purpose is to give the best advice that we can give. First do an evaluation and then give our advice." 11. Reporters 12. Giuliani 13. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico City police commissioner "The other fundamental point which we have considered is how does the legal system functions because this system has serious limitations for the police and as well as making difficult the solution of many of the things that worry people." 14. Reporters at news conference 15. Ebrard and Giuliani shake hands STORYLINE: Trailed by armed guards and protected by armoured vehicles, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani toured some of Mexico City's roughest neighbourhoods on Tuesday. Mexican business leaders, fed up with losses from crime and theft, are paying $4.3 million to have Giuliani and his consulting firm help clean up Mexico City police and crack down on violence and kidnappings here. Giuliani waved off a report that Colombian rebels had been planning to kidnap him in Mexico City. He also said that he didn't have any recommendations yet for changes in Mexico City policing, but emphasised he would be acting in an advisory role. Tuesday's surprise, two-day visit was Giuliani's first to the city. Giuliani said city police leaders appear dedicated to cleaning up the city, and he was optimistic that the zero tolerance policies he used to reduce crime by 65 percent in New York City would also work in Mexico City. Giuliani arrived on a private plane before dawn. His walkabouts took in both rich and poor neighbourhoods. He was expected to leave on Wednesday after meeting with security officials, lawmakers and business leaders. One possibility he is looking at is raising the wages of the city's 35-thousand police officers, who make an average of six-thousand pesos (570 U-S dollars) a month. Mexico City police commissioner Marcelo Ebrard said he believed Giuliani could help the city. President Vicente Fox has pressured the city's government to crack down on crime in the capital, where residents face the constant threat of theft, kidnappings and the drug trade. The police and justice system are infamously corrupt, and officials have taken bribes to dismiss everything from a parking ticket to a homicide case. Taxi drivers sometimes kidnap their passengers, driving them to automatic teller machines and emptying their bank accounts. Other kidnapping gangs focus on politicians, business officials and the rich, chopping off their victims' fingers and mailing the body parts to relatives if a ransom isn't paid.

A federal judge in Mexico recently questioned a Mexico City statute that supposedly protects a citizen's right to free movement. However, the local law says that 48-hour notice on marches must be given and stipulates that major thoroughfares may not be used for demonstrations. The judge ruled that three articles of the law deny people's constitutional rights. Activists hope that this decision will remind other state and local governments that the rights to free speech, movement, assembly and protest are guaranteed by the Constitution of Mexico.

A week after the murder of photojournalist Ruben Espinoza, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Mancera says that a new law will protect journalists. Nevertheless, Dari Rodriguez of the ‘Article 19Human Rights Organization says that the spate of laws purportedly passed to protect journalists in Mexico are political statements and not a clear message that protection will be guaranteed. Of the 88 murders of journalists in the country since 2000, 97% went unpunished. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/mexico-city-mayor-says-new-law-will-protect-journalists/
