Women staged a flash protest outside the courthouse where Harvey Weinstein is being tried

(CNN)“It’s not my fault not where I was, not how I dress,” a female flash mob chanted outside a Manhattan criminal court on Friday.

“And the rapist is you!” they chanted, before going on to point fingers at police, courts, judges and President Donald Trump for contributing to a culture in which sexual assault survivors feel their voices are don’t matter.
Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of rape and one count of a criminal sexual act. The trial is still in the jury selection phase.

    ‘Un Violador en Tu Camino’

    Friday’s demonstration in New York was inspired by a Chilean protest chant that went viral around the world.
    In Spanish, the chant is titled “Un Violador en Tu Camino,” which translates to “A Rapist in Your Path.”
    Lastesis, an all-female art collective from Valparaíso, Chile, posted videos on its Instagram page of massive groups of women chanting the protest anthem on Chilean streets in late November and early December.

    Además, quisiéramos aclarar que rechazamos categóricamente todos aquellos actos de discriminación a mujeres con hij-s, de homofobia y de transodio ocurridos en nuestras convocatorias. Nuestra invitación siempre ha sido y será para mujeres y disidencias, con lo cual buscamos generar un espacio seguro para todas y todes, y no permitiremos que estos actos violentos lo destruyan. A todas las personas que incitan al odio en nuestras publicaciones, nos desean entre otras cosas la violación y la muerte, les queremos decir que no les tenemos miedo. Ahora somos miles. A todos l-s políticos que han manifestado estar tan de acuerdo con nuestro discurso, ahora es su momento de pasar a la acción y ser consecuentes. Ya escucharon nuestras demandas y las de todo un país que lleva 48 días movilizado, ahora es el momento de actuar y rápido. Nosotras seguimos trabajando, seguimos resistiendo, les avisamos y les esperamos. En Chile se violan derechos humanos. Ahora más que nunca renuncia ministra Plá. Renuncia Piñera. Exigimos una Asamblea Constituyente paritaria y plurinacional Y QUE ARDA EL PATRIARCADO. *Video de LASTESIS, intervención en Valparaíso, viernes 29 de noviembre.

    When hundreds of women performed the chant in the streets of the Chilean capital of Santiago, it caught the eye of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who tweeted in solidarity with the protesters.
    At the New York courthouse on Friday, in choreographed motion to a driving drum beat, the women chanted in both English and Spanish.
    Patriarchy is our judge that imprisons us at our birth
    And our punishment is the violence you don’t see
    They repurposed the Chilean chant for an American audience, protesting the man whose alleged transgressions helped launch the #MeToo movement and an international reckoning about issues related to sexual assault.
      “We’re at this location today because it’s very symbolic of everything that’s happening in our justice system,” said one of the protesters in a video interview obtained by CNN.
      She goes on to say that “Harvey Weinstein and what he represents is so indicative of powerful men who feel like they can do anything that they want.”
