Mexican journalist advocates for colleagues endangered while exposing corruption

Lydia Cacho was arrested a decade ago for writing a book that revealed a sex trafficking ring with connections to powerful people in Mexico. Now she is rallying support for other journalists endangered while reporting in Mexico. Last month, a Mexican broadcaster was fired after reporting that the wife of Mexico’s president acquired a large luxury property from a group that had also won several government contracts. Cacho says: “They can erase us journalists from the mainstream media … What they will never be able to do is deny the true stories, snatch away my voice, our voices and our words.”
