The president of the Cortes of Aragon, from Vox, Marta Fernández, has been the only authority who has not shaken the hand of the acting Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, before participating in a high-level event organized in Zaragoza on the occasion of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of Europe. Fernández, who before occupying this position made public statements with messages such as “Irene Montero only knows how to kneel to thrive,” has been the first person whom the highest representative of the Government has greeted. Neither of them have extended their hands, so they have not shaken them. Fernández said: “Welcome to this house,” as heard in a video recorded and broadcast by Cadena SER. Next, the Secretary of State for Equality, Ángela Rodríguez, reached out to the president of the Cortes, in her capacity as the second authority in the region, but the representative of Santiago Abascal’s party has not responded to the gesture. The rest of the representatives present greeted the representatives of the Executive normally.
Along with Fernández, in the welcoming committee, there were also the delegate of the Government of Spain in Aragon, Fernando Beltrán, the Minister of Social Welfare and Family, Carmen Susín (PP), Gerardo Olivan, first secretary of the Cortes table and Ana Varela, director of the Women’s Institute. Fernández was elected president of Parliament at the end of June with the support of the 28 deputies of the PP and the 7 of her party, Vox. Before being named, she deleted numerous messages from her social networks that denied the existence of gender violence or was against masks and doubted their usefulness against the virus.
When the acting minister was already at the Aljafería Palace, where the event was being held, she agreed to make some statements about this moment, which has been especially tense. “I greeted her and told her that I was delighted to be able to meet here today to defend the right to abortion, sexual education and feminist rights, which is what Spanish society is demanding, that we defend the rights of all women. “, has explained. For Irene Montero, what happened this Thursday has been the “best vaccine.” “It is very good that those who deny women’s rights can be here today defending these rights, democracy and feminism, against those who deny sexist violence,” she stressed.
Montero intervenes in the High Level event The effective guarantee of Sexual and Reproductive Rights in Europe, organized by the Government of Spain on the occasion of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of Europe, in which European delegations participate. During the event, in which representatives from 14 EU countries participated, the commitment to a feminist Europe that guarantees sexual and reproductive rights for all women was affirmed.
In the last month, the president of Aragón, Jorge Azcón (PP), has had to come out to defend his Vox partners, due to comments or messages that two general directors of Abascal’s party spread before occupying positions of responsibility. “You have to judge people by the decisions they are going to make (…), but this is a new stage and I have chosen the general directors for what they will do in the future and not for what they have done in the past. past,” he said. Azcón wanted to settle a political and media dust storm that arose when an image of the already general director of Justice, Esmeralda Pastor, was spread in an office, with the pre-constitutional flag in the background, and that she had shared on her profile on the social network Facebook. His colleague from the Aragonese Executive, Jorge Valero, praised Franco’s general Millán Astray on the same social network, whom he congratulated on the 139th anniversary of his birth. Both deleted these contents from their networks. The Government announced, through the Secretary of State for Democratic Memory, the beginning of the procedures to open a file against these two public officials for exalting Francoism and “violating the Law of Democratic Memory”,
