Mexico Deadly for Journalists.

Mexico is the most dangerous country in the world for journalists and the murders keep rising. After the murder of well-known journalist Miroslava Breach in Chihuahua, Cd Juarez newspaper Norte announced its closure in protest against insecurity for journalists and impunity. Two other journalists were killed and two more were the target of armed attacks in March in the country. The publisher of the closed newspaper and human rights advocates discuss the latest violence against media professionals. This edition includes a brief obituary on veteran Mexican American civil rights advocate judge Armando Rodríguez, and on the launching in Sacramento of the Caravan Against Fear.

Guests: Oscar Cantú Murguía, Founding President, Norte de Ciudad Juárez Newspaper, Cd. Juárez, MX: Attorney Carlos Spector Calderón, Experto on Political Asylum and Co-Founder, Mexicanos en Exilio, El Paso, TX; Laura Carlsen, Director, Americas Program, Center for International Policy, Mexico City; Hugo Morales, Executive Director, Radio Bilingüe, Fresno, CA.
