Mexico: Freedom of expression in danger!

type:Petition, Protest
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

Mexican photojournalist Rubén Espinosa was just found tortured and murdered, along with human rights activist Nadia Vera and three other women. Almost none of these crimes have been solved.

Rubén is the 14th journalist killed in the southern state of Veracruz where governor Javier Duarte has made open threats against reporters. Freedom of expression is under attack in one of Latin America’s oldest democracies! This case has sent thousands into the streets and set off an explosion in the national and global media. Hundreds of journalists, writers and artists have signed an open letter demanding justice for journalists in Mexico, murdered for doing their jobs.

Add your voice now and show the Mexican government that people from every country in the world stand with the freedom of expression fight in Mexico!
