Remember Ruben Espinosa

Mexico's Attorney General:

We demand the immediate dismissal of the governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte. Under his reign, 13 journalists have been murdered. We demand a full independent investigation and justice for the victims, including Ruben Espinosa who was found shot dead in Mexico City.

After exposing corruption in his home state, photojournalist Ruben Espinosa fled to Mexico City. Days later, he was found dead. 

In recent years Mexico has become a country as dangerous for journalists as Afghanistan, but the global scandal has created a rare chance for justice.

Ruben was working in Veracruz, a state where 13 journalists have been killed during Governor Duarte’s administration -- but this could be the turning point. Let’s build on growing calls for the Governor to be dismissed and demand a full independent investigation into the murders.

With a huge global call from all of us now, we can force Mexico's attorney general to act. Let’s continue the work that Ruben Espinosa started and win an investigation into the Governor. Sign the petition now and for each signature, Avaaz will print a poster of Ruben’s famous photo of Governor Duarte, the photo he was supposedly killed for.
