Mexico: the most dangerous country in the world to be a journalist
Donnacha DeLong, president of the National Union of Journalists, reviews CAFOD's photography exhibition, "The Silenced: Fighting for Press Freedom in Mexico".
'The Silenced' is a growing group of journalists and media professionals who have been killed for reporting the reality of the country's drugs cartels and their power networks, or have been caught in the cross-fire of drug violence. The exhibition will mark 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.
