Mexico Edition.

Mexico condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine but declines to impose economic sanctions, while a top leader of an indigenous rebel group called to supprt the Ukrainian resistance. A news correspondent reports on these news and the arrival to Mexico of dozens of evacuees from the war zone. On another topic: Amid the Covid pandemic, the United Nations warned about an ignored pandemic: femicides and gender violence. In Mexico, sexist attacks in the country are on the rise. A women advocate talks about the levels of impunity on femicides and violence against trans people, the hesitation to classify crimes as femicides, and the new alert system on gender-based violence against women to protect women’s human rights.

Guest: Citlali Saenz, Correspondent, Mexico City; Diana Manzo, Reporter, National Journalism Award 2019 Recipient, Oaxaca.
