Speeches since 2019

11/10/2023 | 20:03:56 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Good morning, everyone. Addressing and analyzing the issue of violence against women with disabilities is a matter of paramount importance and urgency. Sadly, we forget that women with disabilities face multifaceted challenges in their daily life that deepen even more when they are victims of violence. Discrimination, marginalization, and gender-based violence cruelly intensify when intersecting with disability, generating a vicious cycle of... 11/10/2023 | 20:03:45 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Good morning, everyone.Spy software and secret state surveillance is a phenomenon that threatens the foundations of our democracies. Software programs like "Pegasus" have enabled unprecedented state secret surveillance in the history of our nations; they have been used to spy on journalists, human rights activists, politicians, and ordinary citizens in several nations.As a Mexican parliamentarian, I can tell you that this type of software is... 23/06/2023 | 12:35:49 And I greet you with a warm Mexican smile.  In an increasingly interconnected world, where technology has become a fundamental part of our society, it is our duty to ensure that all individuals have the same opportunities to participate fully in the economy and in everyday life. Inequality and access to and use of digital technology is a reality that affects millions of people across the globe.  In Mexico, some 82% of people use digital technologies in the urban areas and 56% in rural areas... 23/06/2023 | 10:50:13 Transnational repression emerged as a global phenomenon after the tragic events of October 2008 when Mr Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist, was murdered and dismembered inside the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul. As a Mexican parliamentarian, I have a moral obligation to raise my voice in the face of the phenomenon of transnational repression, especially since associations such as Reporters Without Borders have said that Mexico is the second-most dangerous country in the world to be a... 26/04/2023 | 20:01:21 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Good morning, In Mexico, 38 years ago there was an earthquake of 8.1 magnitude and 6 years ago we suffered an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1. When we learned in my country what had happened in Turkey and Syria, our hearts, prayers, and thoughts went out to them, as did everyone present. In Anglo-Saxon law, natural disasters are known as "acts of God" and therefore no person can be held responsible for their consequences. And although... 25/01/2023 | 19:06:47 Good day from Mexico, good day Europe. My interest in participating in this debate is because I am originally from Tlaxcala, a Mexican state that carries the infamous burden for being known for the cases of violence against women. Shamefully, in one way or another, there will always be men from Tlaxcala involved in cases of women trafficking rings, as reported by The Guardian, The Independent, and The Washington Post. The number of cases about economic violence or the limitations to control... 13/10/2022 | 18:44:24 Good afternoon, Colleagues. Good morning, Mexico. I have always believed in the potential of women in sports is a source of competitiveness and strength. Women have been gaining considerable ground within the world of sport. Nevertheless, their position is not yet exempt from violence and sexism. Therefore, it is hard to see that we still have an environment that favours men and not women. One of the greatest injustices against women who compete at the professional level is the inequality in... 27/04/2022 | 20:12:24 Thank you, Ms President. There is an international consensus to absolutely prohibit the unnecessary and excessive use of force by the police. As has been the case in Europe, and as it has been pointed out by the European Court of Human Rights, the principles that govern the use of force have also been included in Mexican legislation. Absolute necessity, legality, prevention, proportionality, and accountability. However, Mexico's statistical data from 2021, shows that 23% of people deprived of... 27/04/2022 | 18:46:42 If you allow me, Madam Chair.  First of all, a message of solidarity. The war which is being undertaken by Russia on Ukraine is reprehensible. I embrace warmly the people of Ukraine and its brave President, who have been violated in their human rights and its rule of law. In Mexico, we are praying that Ukrainians will go back onto the path towards a brilliant future. Our democratic responsibility now is to act in favour of democracy and peace globally. I begin with my remarks. One of the most... 26/01/2022 | 11:29:51 Good morning. The report from this committee expresses clearly the concern of this Assembly because of the financial excess in football, and tries to increase transparency in the financial flows related to transfers. This has attracted my attention because it is closely related to my work in our parliament in Mexico. We consider that football can be considered a vulnerable activity, because its vulnerability to financial excess. The financial monitoring group has said football is the world's...
