BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, March 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Women who participated in an International Women’s Day march in historic heart of Buenos Aires covered the national museum with graffiti, attempted to set the Metropolitan Cathedral afire, and viciously attacked a lone man who bravely tried to defend the cathedral.

Startling video footage shows the man standing in front of the cathedral, quietly holding a Vatican City flag. He is approached by a masked women who attempts to take the flag from his hands. After that another woman lunges at him and tries to punch him in the head.

After that, hordes of women surround him, punching him, pulling his hair, and shoving him away from the cathedral.

Among the thousands of marchers on Wednesday were feminists, LGBT supporters, and members of the Socialist Workers Party dressed as Halloween witches. When their largely peaceful march ended with ceremonies at the Plaza Mayo, some marchers stayed to defile two of the city’s oldest buildings.

They covered the Cibalda, now a museum but 400 years ago the seat of government, with graffiti. They also attempted to set fire to the Metropolitan Cathedral, a frequent target, like other Argentine Catholic churches, of International Women’s Day marchers. Feminists and Leftists blame the Catholic Church for Argentina’s restrictions on abortion.

Held back by a temporary barrier and police, they pelted the latter with bottles and rocks. When they failed to set the church on fire, they succeeded in torching the fence.

The video of the lone defender of the catehdarl was posted by a Facebook page called LGBTears, with this caption. “This is a friend of ours. We met him years ago, and we know that he didn’t hit anyone or incite any violence. He went to defend the cathedral so that it was not vandalized. There are a lot of people saying he was smacking the participants of the march, but he didn’t touch anyone.”

Police dispersed the protesters with rubber bullets and water from fire hydrants. They arrested about 20 people allegedly involved in vandalism, but march spokespersons claimed they were innocent bystanders. They called the arrests “a witch hunt.”

This is far from the first time that feminist protests in Argentina have been marred by horrific violence. Videos from the annual Women’s Day March in Mar de Plata show groups of Catholics trying to defend the cathedral against protesters, while being viciously assaulted by topless women who spit on them, throw bottles at them, spraypaint them, and attempt to set the church on fire.

Similarly disturbing scenes were seen in Posadas, Argentina, in 2012.

  1. Dear Bishop Gracida, even though yours is a lone voice, it is a most powerful voice! The Lord has said “My grace is enough for you; my power is at its best in weakness’, so I shall be very happy to make my weaknesses my special boasts so that the power of Christ may stay over me, and that is why I am quite content with my weaknesses, and with insults, hardships persecutions, and the agonies I go through for Christ’s sake. FOR IT IS WHEN I AM WEAK THAT I AM STRONG.” This is what your motto means, as you said, and you are the personification of the Grace and Power of Christ working through weakness. We, little people, (weak ones) follow your lead with prayers and reparation, as you accomplish the ministry that Jesus Christ has entrusted to you. God bless you, dear Bishop, as you proclaim Christ Crucified!

    These women are acting like schools of sharks who smell blood … like the gathering of vultures. I would be terrified of them if I didn’t have my Sacramentals about me. Especially Miraculous Medal, Crucifix and St. Benedict medal….

  3. These female beasts think of themselves as women.

    Dear Bishop Gracida,

    Yours is a lone voice among the silence of active bishops.

    Clearly from this article and many others reporting the violence emanating from so-called peace lovers points rather to the Marxist face of these protests and protestors. Marxists do not give up. Their father is Satan, his rebellion from the beginning was Marxist in nature, denying lawful authority, committing sacrilege and blasphemy at the same time. These protestors are his children.

    One lone brave man defends the nation’s Cathedral from the venomous attack of fevered Marxist females – disgraceful!!

    What stresses me is that there is a weapon in the arsenal of the Church that is laying dormant. It is a weapon given by Heaven itself, the Holy Face devotion. Our Lord specifically calls His faithful to make war against the communist via this devotion.

    The face of Marxism is the face of Satan, the proto-rebel, and the Face of the Church is the living Face of Christ,…only Christ can defeat Marxism. But what do churchmen do? They want to dialogue, they do nothing, they agree or worse join in, it is very frustrating to behold.

    * …This was the first revelation from heaven concerning Communism. Our Lord said that this devotion would defeat it. It is, therefore, the sister-devotion to the Fatima devotion–necessary to save the world. * ..Our Lord told Sr. Mary, ‘Woe to those cities that will not make this Reparation !” * …He said, “Sinners are snatched from this world and they are swept into hell like the dust that is carried away by the fury of a tornado. Have pity on your brothers and pray for them!” * * …This devotion is to have the TWOFOLD PURPOSE OF REPARATION FOR BLASPHEMY and REPARATION FOR THE PROFANATION OF SUNDAY and Holy Days of Obligation, the two principal sins which in modem times are provoking the anger of God. Sr. Mary said, “He then made me see that this frightful sin wounds His Divine Heart more grievously than all other sins, showing me how by BLASPHEMY the sinner curses Him to His Face, attacks Him publicly, nullifies HIs Redemption, and pronounces his own judgment and condemnation…The Savior made me understand that His justice was greatly irritated against mankind for its sins but particularly for those that directly outrage the Majesty of God–that is, Communism, Atheism, cursing, and the desecration of Sundays and the Holy Days. He said, The executioners crucified Me On Friday, CHRISTIANS CRUCIFY ME ON SUNDAY.”

    Thank you for your voice Bishop. God preserve you.
