“¡Basta de Sangre!” – “No + sangre” Campaign

first_imgNews 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Follow the news on Mexico MexicoAmericas RSF_en At the initiative of the famous cartoonist Eduardo del Río (Rius), Mexico’s best cartoonists have launched the “¡Basta de Sangre!? – “No + sangre” campaign to oppose the appalling loss of life in the federal government’s offensive against drug-trafficking. More than 30,000 people have been killed since President Felipe Calderón launched this offensive in 2006. Relayed by major Mexican newspapers such as La Jornada, Reforma and Milenio, the campaign deserves all the publicity it can get. Cartoonists such as Rafael “El Fisgón” Barajas, Antonio Helguera, José Hernández, Helio Flores, Rafael “Rapé” Pineda and Alejandro Magallanes are donating cartoons to the campaign – and to the public – that can be reproduced free of charge. Reporters Without Borders is supporting this initiative by posting a portfolio of the cartoons on its website.
