Yesterday I had a long talk on the phone with my Mexican sister * about femicide and Las Brujas del Mar. And she said: <<The main problem is this so-called 'war on drugs' and Mexican gangs i.e. narco trafficantes who again and again know how to fool the US but the worse is that they are also fooling innocent Mexican and poor women, luring them to take the highest risks by smuggling drugs across the border being promised thousands of US dollars. They are however not told the high risks they run when caught and neither what will happen when they fail to deliver and return to MX. And this is what happens to them: being threathened that their children and husbands will pay with their lives and being terribly tortured to tell them about where their drugs are and when saying they did deliver we should believe them but still and finally they're being killed themselves not knowing if their children/husbands are still alive.>>
Hundreds if not thousands of women fall victim to femicide this way.

<<Femicides in Mexico | Arussi Unda, from Las Brujas del Mar: <Sexism and impunity make the perfect mix where women are hated and nothing happens>

In a year 2020 marked by covid-19, there was another scourge that the government of Mexico recently qualified as <the other pandemic> in the country. It is about violence against women and girls that continues to leave alarming figures in Mexico, where at least ten violent deaths are recorded every day, according to official figures. Last year, the cruelty of several femicides made thousands of people say enough is enough and took to the streets to protest and demand real action from the government against these crimes.
The social movements of women gained special strength and, among them, the feminist group Las Brujas del Mar stood out, architects of the national strike to which millions of women joined on March 9. Her spokesperson, the Veracruz marketer Arussi Unda, was recognized for her work even by international media such as Time magazine or the BBC. Mexico closed 2020 with 3,723 violent deaths of women, adding femicides and intentional homicides. It is a figure almost equal to that of the previous year, when there was no pandemic.
To say that only a little more than 900 of these cases were classified as femicides when there are thousands of intentional homicides of women is to want to make up the figure. Many families struggle for years so that the murder of their daughters or relatives is typified as femicide. Collectives we ask that the folders and cases be reviewed for this to happen. And that without counting the dark figure, which is the number of missing women. So we don't really know how many there are. If there are no bodies, there are no femicides.>>

<<Lideresa de Brujas del Mar, a Mexican feminist collective, was recognized by the BBC as one of the 100 most influential women in the world this 2020.

Arussi Unda, feminist, activist and leader of the Brujas del Mar collective is considered one of the most influential women in the world. Like every year the BBC released its ranking of the 100 most influential women in the world and this time it was surprising to find among them the name of the Mexican Arussi Unda, feminist, activist and leader of the Brujas del Mar collective. According to the British media, in this 2020 they stand out women who <are driving change and making a difference in these turbulent times.> In the list of this particular year marked by the pandemic and social changes, the medium recognized 11 Latin American women. In reference to the Mexican, the BBC noted that Unda and its feminist collective Brujas del Mar, has emerged as a voice for all women.

Unda, was also recognized for having led a national strike on March 9, in which women quit their jobs and other activities to stay home in protest and show what a day without women would be like.
<There are slogans and slogans like ‘The revolution will be feminist’ or ‘The future is feminist’, but the future is already here. We must be brave and keep raising our voice>, Says the young woman. It should be noted that the femicide rate in Mexico increased 3.1% this year, because according to the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System at least 2,240 women were murdered, during the first seven months of the year.

<<MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Activist Arussi Unda knew many across Mexico shared her fury over violence against women and impunity for the perpetrators, but she was still surprised when her vision of women staging a national one-day strike took off beyond her home state.
In many towns and cities, women next Monday will skip school, work and other activities to show how public life looks without them, delivering a critique of the violence that has led to a surge in femicides, or gender-motivated killings of women. <It's like a Cinderella story,> Unda told Reuters, marvelling at how her obscure 15-member feminist collective Brujas del Mar ("Witches of the Sea") had suddenly been thrust into the national spotlight by the protest it helped inspire. <This is like the lost village, the tiny collective, the nobody women ... but sooner or later, it was going to happen,> said Unda, whose group in the eastern state of Veracruz lives off its own funds, plus sales of bandannas and key chains. Femicides in Mexico jumped 137% in the past five years, according to Mexican government statistics, as gang violence pushed the national murder tally to record heights. Most violent crimes go unsolved. In Veracruz, one of the main battlegrounds of warring drug cartels, femicides leapt almost 300% to 159 in 2019, fuelling the indignation of women's advocacy groups. <Women in Mexico are fed up,> said Unda, 32, the spokeswoman for Brujas del Mar, which became known in Mexico late last year for its advocacy of abortion rights. <It's not just the obvious crisis of femicides in Mexico but also what happens every day at home, at school, at work. There's no place that is safe for us.> >>

<<Women's strike has no ties to parties, let the President be clear: Brujas del Mar.

Arussi Unda, spokesperson for the Brujas del Mar feminist collective, which launched the call for the national women's strike <Un día sin nosotras>, reiterated that her movement has no ties to political parties, as President Andrés Manuel López pointed out this morning. Workshop. <I am somewhat surprised by the insistence that there is a link with a political party, there isn't, I thought it was clear, when there is a link there is much to prove it with," he said in an interview with Ciro Gómez Leyva, in the Newscast In the morning.> He pointed out that <it is worrying that (the president) speaks of provocations, it seems that he is provoking reactions of annoyance or nonconformity.> He added that the group thanks the president for changing the start date of ticket sales lottery on the occasion of the presidential plane.

<<Femicides in Mexico: the profound consequences suffered by children, the forgotten victims of this tragedy. At almost 59 years old, Margarita Alanís remembers how she had to <grab the bull by the horns> and become a mother of small children again. This time, from her own grandchildren. Campira Camorlinga, one of her daughters, became one of the 10 women who are murdered every day in Mexico on December 31, 2016. She was 31 years old. The alleged perpetrator was her partner, Jorge Humberto Martínez, a man whom the media nicknamed El Matanovias for allegedly murdering another woman with whom he had a relationship two years earlier, and trying unsuccessfully with a third. His modus operandi would have always been the same: to pretend that the victims had committed suicide. Campira was found dead in her bed with her wrists slashed, the gas faucet open, and locks of her hair cut off.
The crime marked the family forever, Margarita recalls, but especially her grandchildren Vladmir and Alexa, who were then 12 and almost 3 years old, respectively, and who continue to suffer the aftermath of her mother's murder. Like them, some 4,000 boys and girls, according to specialist calculations, were orphaned in Mexico during the first half of last year alone after their mothers were victims of femicide. They thus become <indirectly affected> of a brutal crime of which, on occasions, they even become witnesses. Although, judging by the abandonment and lack of support they denounce from the State, they could well be classified as <invisible victims>.
The authorities themselves acknowledge a historical silence regarding the reality of these orphaned children, which they are now trying to correct with new measures after the murders of Ingrid Escamilla and the girl Fátima Aldrighett shook the foundations of a country that seems to have already said enough. .<Invisible population>
Perhaps the greatest proof of the invisibility of these children is that there is not even an official registry in Mexico that allows knowing how many there are. Based on the number of women murdered between December 2018 and June 2019 and the average number of children they usually have, the National Institute for Women (Inmujeres) calculated that orphans in that period could range between 3,400 and 4,245.> >

Personal note by Gino d'Artali

My mother, Gianna d'Artali, and I have been through hell for 15 years when, as I call them now, one rat after another, in sequencies of 5 approx. years, had been beating and raping my mother to a pulp, 27 7, and I, aged between 0 and 15, was not only a witness but also, as far as a baby i.e. boy could, help her taking care of the bleeding and also, from (baby-) boy with soothing words, trying to encourage her, and myself, to hold on. Years later I wrote this poem:

<30 frames a second.

One man and his never-ending nightmares.

I want to die
to be re-united
with my mother
and continue our private war
against the male predators
who take females and children
as war trophees
but we will not bite the dust!

Even if we are
sweating bullets
and my mother also
and still covered with blood
after I patched her up
with bandages and plasters
and even when I didn't understand
why all this was happening.

You predadors beated up and raped my mother
day and night
blood on you face
big disgrace.

But my mother and I always
and gave each other strength

and we both always
longed for love,
she from a man,
I from a father
but never found it.

Have the perpetrators won?
Hell no!!!>
