In Mexico City, journalists gathered outside the offices of the attorney general Thursday demanding an investigation into the abduction of Salvador Adame Pardo, a journalist who was kidnapped by gunmen in the state of Michoacán on May 18. The abduction came amid a wave of murders of Mexican journalists. This is Frida Urtiz, Salvador Adame’s wife.
Frida Urtiz: “All journalists in Mexico are scared. Journalists go through this constantly. Today, we should not be separated. We should be united. We have different opinions, but we should be united, so that no other Salvador goes missing.”
Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights reports over 120 journalists have been killed since 2000.
