We’ve been a bit overwhelmed by the amount of work in Mexico these past few weeks, but I would like to post a thread with some recommended reading for those interested in knowing more about the recent spike in violence against journalists in Mexico. 7:11 p. m. · 3 feb. 2022
- This great piece by @sandradibble describes how reporters in Tijuana, where two journalists were murdered in January, feel about state and federal protection programs for reporters and human rights defenders in Mexico. – via @voiceofsandiego
- Here’s a great piece by @WendyFry_for the @sdut that provides more context about the recent violence against Mexican journalists.
- If you don’t follow them yet, @sandradibble and @WendyFry_ are reporters from the San Diego/Tijuana area who I have admired for a long time and who provide important depth and context in English about the situation in Tijuana.
- @rubenarnoldogm just provided me with several links to academic writing that digs into the challenges Mexican journalists are facing: scielo.org.co/scielo.php?scr
- For the @washingtonpost, @Enrique_Acevedo wrote this op-ed about the shared responsibilities of both the Mexican and US governments in the current press freedom crisis in Mexico. (In Spanish)
- Here are some more suggestions (courtesy of @rubenarnoldogm) of academics who have studied press freedom in Mexico in recent years: @celiadelp @Miremara @Sallie_MIA @celestegdb @Saveteur @FrRodelo @griselsr
- My highly esteemed friend and colleague Rogelio Hernández writes regular columns about press freedom in Mexico for @EjeCentral. He recently expressed his concern about the lack of interest in reforms of the Mexican federal Mechanism.
- José Díaz-Briseño @diazbriseno. En respuesta a @jahootsen. Thank you @jahootsen & @pressfreedom for your work & commitment.
