Chiapas: One Year since the Declaration of Gender Violence Alert (GVA) in Chiapas

GVA

One year after the Declaration of a Gender Violence Alert in Chiapas (November 18th, 2016), the Popular Campaign against Violence against Women and Femicide in Chiapas denounced governmental actions and omissions in a communiqué. It reported that in this period it documented “119 violent deaths that must be investigated as femicides and 46 documented femicides; while the State Prosecutor’s Office (FGE) registers 27 femicides and 35 intentional deaths, resulting in a total of 62 women murdered in Chiapas in 2017, from January to October.” For this reason, it concluded: “Everything we have documented throughout this year of the Gender Violence Alert is what allows us to characterize that in Chiapas and Mexico we have a femicidal State, since it is not only permissive but also an accomplice of violence against girls, women and elderly women and the increasing femicidal violence in our homes, streets, communities and cities of the state.”

In the main deficiencies in the implementation of the GVA, the Campaign emphasized:

“The unjustified delay of the state government institutions, specifically the Government Secretariat and the State Attorney General’s Office, to comply with agreements that would make it possible to correct or diminish institutional negligence such as the investigation procedure, the application of protocols, protection measures, translation services and professional assistance in the public service to attend, channel and eradicate frequent vices.”

“The ineffective coordination between the institutions of the three levels of the government, municipal, state and federal.”

“The absence and vacuum of authority of the state executive power.”

“The instrumentalization and the use of the resources destined to the GVA to promote the disqualified image of the governor, that simulates the attention of the causes of the structural violence in Chiapas.”

“The discrimination against women, racism and classism of Governor Velasco Coello that has been publicly evident in sexist and misogynistic advertising messages.”

– “The recurring omission and invisibilization of violence particularly suffered by immigrant and refugee women, girls and women with different abilities, indigenous people, trafficking of persons who, in Chiapas, as a border state, characterize the Gender Violence Alert and its urgent multicultural, multiethnic and generational attention.”

“The state continues to be immersed in an internal armed conflict, and this situation of war, which militarizes the state and ramps up violence and the violation of human rights with an unresolved history of serious violence against women.”

“The issue of punctual attention to women victims of violence remains unanswered, especially due to access to justice and health in cases of sexual, physical, psycho-emotional and other abuse.”
