“Her last name defines her”: Lilly Téllez struck Rosario Piedra after her appearance before the Chamber of Deputies
The president of the CNDH justified the null intervention of the organization in the issue of the Military Reform proposed by AMLO
Despite the fact that the same members of the Commission they disagreed and they distanced themselves from the fact, Piedra Ibarra has maintained its position on several occasions. And on Tuesday it was no exception.
Well, during his appearance in the Chamber of Deputies, Rosario Piedra Ibarra defended her management as president of the CNDH and even took the opportunity to show her position in favor of electoral reform through a peculiar allegation against the electoral referee that caught everyone’s attention.
“We have just issued a recommendation precisely, because impunity does not start right now (…) it has been in this country for years, it has outrages, extrajudicial executions and that is why the recommendation we made for the INE because there was a terrible massacre on July 7 of 1952 of more than 500 Mexican citizens who demonstrated peacefully and the only thing they wanted was to respect the right to vote and there was electoral fraud.
It was thus that he pointed out that the CNDH made a recommendation against the INE for a massacre that occurred 70 years ago years, when the Federal Electoral Institute did not yet exist (IFE), predecessor of the INE, founded in 1990. The one known as The Alameda Massacre.
This derived from a peaceful demonstration held in the capital of the country for an alleged fraud in the presidential elections of that year, where he was elected Adolfo Ruiz Cortinescandidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) instead of Miguel Henriquez Guzman.
“Not to be believed”, Rosario Piedra justified electoral reform by accusing the INE of not preventing the 1952 massacre
During her appearance, the president of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) accused the electoral body of events that occurred four decades before its founding
Guzmán was a member of the PRI who had run for president twice before. After not receiving the opportunity for the third time, he launched himself with the Federation of Mexican People’s Parties (FPPM), which was backed by the Union of Peasant Federations of Mexico (UFCM) with which an alternation in politics was sought.
When the day of the voting arrived, on July 6, 1952, there were riots in the areas where there was a preference for Henríquez Guzmán and shortly before the figures were given to find out the winner, the newspapers indicated that Ruíz Cortines He was the one who had the advantage and they declared him the winner.
The PAN affirmed that the CNDH and Morena will “cheat” to approve the Electoral Reform
The members of the blue and white party urged the population to monitor the legislators, as they could weaken the INE
For this reason, one day after the elections, on July 7, 1952, the members of the FPPM gathered in the Alameda Central in Mexico City, after a call to the Victory Party. As they reached the meeting point, the Henriquistas yelled “electoral fraud.”
However, someone fired. And that shot served as a signal for the armed forces that opened fire against the Henriquistas. Between tear gas, gunshots and the onslaught of mounted authorities armed with sabers, people fell dead or wounded.
The number left by the massacre was around 200 people and more than 500 detainees, although the exact figures are unknown, since several bodies were taken to Military Camp No. 1 where they were cremated.
