Mexican photojournalist Rubén Espinosa — who took a picture of the mayor of Veracruz Javier Duarte for the magazine Proceso — was tortured and killed on July 31, and his corpse was found along with four murdered women.
A month after his death, three international organizations — PEN, Avaaz and the Commitee To Protect Journalists — have helped launch the #NoNosCallarán (#WeWillNotBeSilenced) initiative to help pressure the Mexican government to respond to the killings.
Last Saturday, friends and family of the homicide victims where gathered by Avaaz to help invite people to join them.
Earlier this week, Mexican newspaper El Universal ran a cover page all in black declaring solidarity with the campaign.
Lydia Cacho, Mexican journalist and spokesperson of the movement, wrote about the cover in her column published in the news site Aristegui Noticias.
"Because my fellow reporters shouldn't have disappeared or died, or suffered from persecution until their last days #WeWontBeSilenced," she wrote. "Because the last word on how the Mexican political system should be is not said yet, and nobody will censor us #WeWontBeSilenced."
