Tell Us

el DiarioWe don't want to see more dead. We don't want to see more wounded, nor do we want to be intimidated. It is impossible for us to do our job under these conditions. Tell us, then, what you expect from us, as a newspaper? ... This is not a surrender. This is about a truce with those who have imposed the force of their law in this city, so that you will respect the lives of those who dedicate themselves to the job of informing the public.

-- From an editorial on the front page of the Mexican newspaper El Diario de Juarez, following the second murder of an el Diario reporter, 20 September 2010
