Aid agency CAFOD and The Guardian have joined forces to highlight the toll of murdered journalists in Mexico.
Between 2000 and 2012, 55 reporters and media workers were murdered in Mexico; the vast majority of the killings have gone unpunished. The stories of these courageous men and women who died fighting to uncover the truth have been brought together in this photo exhibition.
The Silenced: Fighting for Press Freedom in Mexico was developed in collaboration with The Guardian and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), and launched on World Press Freedom Day on May 3, 2012. It marks the courage and determination of 'The Silenced' and those who continue to fight to tell the truth about the Latin American drug cartels, despite the risks.
