Mexico is not a war zone, and yet it is one of the most dangerous places in the world for reporters. At least five journalists have been killed in 2019 alone. The Mexican government has repeatedly promised to protect journalists and freedom of speech. But the shootings and beatings continue. What does this mean for freedom of the press and democracy? What can we do?
