  • The killing of journalists has plagued Mexico since the government’s war on cartels began in 2006, and it has remained at the top of many watchdog lists as one of the most dangerous countries in the world to be a journalist. But 2022 has already seen a rise in those attacks, with at least 13 killed by the end of August – nearly double the whole of 2021. The killings are all caught up in the web of violence, corruption and impunity that has plagued Mexico for years. But despite government efforts to protect journalists, the situation has only gotten worse.

    Fault Lines reports on the risks journalists in Mexico face trying to bring the truth to light.

    Motivi per cui le persone non investiranno in questo momento: crollo delle criptovalute, inflazione record, timori del mercato ribassista, tassi di interesse in aumento, discorsi sulla bolla immobiliare, ma forse questi sono motivi per investire ora.

    Reasons why people won’t invest right now : Crypto crashing , Record inflation , Bear market fears , Rising interest rates , Housing bubble talk , but maybe , these are reasons to invest now .

    Zahran X says:

    Such a broad statement. Those with no economy background and don’t understand investment as others do, ESPECIALLY in the crypto space, don’t have the set of skills needed to identify investment opportunities but more importantly, they cannot afford to be taking such a risk with their current expenses etc. I personally am with you, my family and i are still buying crypto but we are buying precious metals and land. Land is the only appreciating asset when you make the right purchase

    SpeedWolf says:

    This is a serious issue that must be addressed, but I would like to point out that police officers who try to do their jobs face the same challenges, with no protection for their families, let alone themselves, while being underpaid and extorted by their own Watch Commander, and many high-profile murders are suspected to be carried out by the military with no oversight. And the journalist being murdered, which is tragic, is just the tip of the iceberg of the problem with impunity and corruption here in Mexico.

    and it is very easy to blame the police for being corrupt, but no one ever questions the lack of training and security as well as the salary to become a police officer. or the fact that the National Guard is under the control of the military. with many questionable disappearances and murders that are directly or indirectly linked to the Mexican military.

    as hardly any of this is being discussed, let alone investigated.

    Sivuyile Mtsi says:

    I also feel that the police are just as caught up in this corrupt, rotten and dangerous system as the journalist they are sometimes sent against. Pity so many active police officers are too afraid, for themselves and their families to speak out; like these journalists, otherwise we would get the sense of how deep the rot is.

    Those brave journalist had more balls than one will ever know! Hope they’re remembered for centuries to come.

    What happened this journalist and what is the reason behind the killing of this joournalist
    Journalist is not crim

    Gustavo Wisdom says:

    If the mexican people really want things to change they must seek GOD-JESUS CHRIST BUT IT MUST BE WITH A SINCERE HEART HE WILL NOT INTERVENE UNTILL THEY DOO SO BECUZ THEY HAVE CHOSEN 2 EXCLUDE HIM FROM THEIR HEARTS BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY NOTHING CAN HURT U IF THE ALL MIGHTY IS WITH U

    Isabella M says:

    Organized crime wouldn’t have so much power there if they actually paid a living wage in Mexico. When people turn to work in cartel’s it’s because there’s no better opportunity for a lot of them.
