The head of the National Action Party (PAN) in Mexico City, Mauricio Tabe, sought to make it clear that that they would not seek to forbid protests in the capital.

He reminded that one of the party’s goals was for protests to be regulated, but taking into account the cohabitation of certain freedoms, such as the freedom of transit and the freedom to protest, without affecting others.

The candidate to be a member of Mexico City’s forthcoming Constitutional Assembly pointed out that, in the new constitution, a necessary guarantee will be needed to make sure that the right to protest does not imply total blocking of primary routes that make the city collapse.

Mauricio Tabe detailed that, according to data from the Mexico City Governance Secretariat, there are on average between 8 and 9 protests every day in the city, causing transit chaos, and requiring Mexico City’s Public Security Secretariat (SSPDF) to assign up to 2 thousand 500 police to a protest.

He stressed that in european capitals such as Berlin, Paris, Madrid or London protests are regulated and the right to protest is guaranteed.

The new constitution must make sure the right to protest is respected, but also make sure that the rights of others are respected. The right to protest must be guaranteed, but this mustn’t be misinterpreted and be used as a right to block and collapse the city. Regulating protest does not amount to forbidding them, nor repressing them.”
