They neither saw nor heard the workers of the Judicial Branch

Francisco Garfias.

“Mr. Senator, stop the dictator!” It was the slogan most chanted by the workers of the Judicial Branch (PJ) who yesterday protested in front of the Senate against the extinction of 13 trusts, whose approval was generally outlined last night.

Senators from Morena, PT and PVEM neither saw them nor heard them. With some exceptions, they once again demonstrated that they only have eyes and ears to see, hear and obey instructions from the National Palace.

Not for a minute did they deviate from the deceptive presidential speech that positions PJ workers as “privileged” who move the revolving door so that criminals come out.

Nor did they defend the acquired labor rights (pensions, complementary medical benefits...) or the mistreated division of powers.

One of the arguments they used on the platform is that it is prohibited to form trusts. In it The paragraph that they added to article 223 of the Organic Law of the Judiciary establishes:

“In the area of ​​the Judicial Branch, no other funds or trusts may be created or maintained in operation in addition to the Economic Fund for the Improvement of the Administration of Justice.”

But both PRI member Claudia Anaya and PAN member Damián Zepeda were responsible for reminding them that the military's trusts reach 100 billion pesos. “The trusts don't bother them, the independence of the Judiciary bothers them,” the PRI member stressed.


Xóchitl did not miss the opportunity. The virtual presidential candidate of the FAM left the Senate to show solidarity with the dissatisfied workers.

“We know that the doors of the National Palace are closed to him. They closed it for me. "We don't like that they close the doors here in the Senate to the workers of the Judiciary."

She was accompanied by Julen Rementería, coordinator of the PAN bench; Manuel Añorve, his PRI counterpart and other senators. On the way to the street, Julen told us: “Let's show solidarity with the workers. “We are not assholes.”

The group wanted to leave through the door of the Senate located in Reforma, right where the workers were. It was closed. Nobody from the security service came to open it. “I'm good at breaking locks,” the Hidalgo native boasted.

There was no need. Gálvez decided to head to the gate of Madrid. Everyone behind her. They didn't open the door. He sneaked through a little gap they left. A long line followed her. As soon as the protesters saw it, they shouted repeatedly: That support can be seen!

He told them: “We opposition senators are fighting. “We have understood that the extinction of the trusts directly affects their labor rights, but the government has prevented the discussion.”

Enough for them to be delivered to him. “Xóchitl! “Xóchitl!” was heard.


Jesús Gilberto González, general secretary of the PJ Workers' Union, entered the Upper House to defend his cause. He stopped for a moment in the Patio of Federalism. We ask: Do you feel betrayed by President López Obrador?

-Assaulted. There is a video circulating there where in his protest he said that he was going to be respectful. He hasn't been. I believe that his message is not worthy of a head of the Nation.

–Is it revenge about the trusts?

–Curiously it was from May 22 to July 9. There were electoral laws that did not pass. There he began to talk about trusts. He said, “See you at the budget.”

The union member met with the president of the Justice Commission, Olga Sánchez Cordero. The former SCJN minister told him that he would defend four trusts. He complied.

The Morena senator destroyed the official discourse that privileges are defended.

“I come to defend a republican principle: that of the independence of the powers of the Union,” he said at the beginning of his speech, which opened the debate in general.

And in the name of 22,892 judicial officers, 11,214 court secretaries; 1,721 judges and magistrates, 1,911 defense lawyers, spoke out against the elimination of the four trusts:

1.-The one that has to do with infrastructure development. 2.-The maintenance of houses of judges and magistrates in highly dangerous places that is nourished, I assure, by payroll deductions.

3.-Complementary pensions for judges and magistrates; 4.- complementary medical support and economic support that is fed by fees and donations from the workers of the Judiciary and not from the Budget.


The interviews of the ten candidates for UNAM rector began yesterday with the members of the Governing Board who must elect Enrique Graue's successor, before November 17.

Yesterday we had the opportunity to ask Leonardo Lomelí, general secretary of that house of Studies and one of the candidates to be rector, what does autonomy mean for the University?

“Autonomy is the oxygen of the University. Without it we would not be able to fully exercise the freedom to teach, the freedom to research, and the freedom to disseminate culture,” said the UNAM secretary general.
