MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses Organized crimeImpunityViolenceFreedom of expression MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses Organized crimeImpunityViolenceFreedom of expression Help by sharing this information It was only after the sixth murder of a journalist since the start of the year and after protests erupted in several cities that Peña Nieto finally announced a series of concrete measures to provide journalists with more protection and to combat impunity for crimes of violence against them. This pledge comes late in the game, but is nevertheless welcome and necessary given the serious violence that journalists in the country are facing“Every crime against a journalist is an attack on freedom of expression and on society as whole,” Peña Nieto said at a meeting of 24 Mexican state governors and other senior officials. “As president, I assure you that we will act with firmness to arrest and punish those responsible.Among other measures, RSF notes that he announced plans to reinforce the Federal Mechanism for Protecting Human Rights Defenders and Journalists and the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE). He also announced plans to establish a national protocol for investigating crimes of violence against journalists and for looking after the victims.The government should also facilitate the joint official visit of to the UN and Inter-American Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression, that have reiterated their request last April to the Mexican State and are still waiting for a response from the authorities.“We welcome the undertakings given by President Peña Nieto and we expect them to be followed up by action,” said Balbina Flores, RSF’s representative in Mexico. “We will remain vigilant and will closely monitor the implementation of the announced measures, which are very urgent, given the terrible violence to which journalists have been exposed for more than a decade.”No fewer than 27 journalists have been murdered in connection with their work during Peña Nieto’s term as president, which began in December 2012. Since 2010, the FEADLE has received 798 complaints about serious physical violence against journalists, 47 of them murders. Only three of the complaints have resulted in convictions and sentences. The impunity is almost total.Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. In a report published in February, entitled “Veracruz: journalists and the state of fear,” RSF provided the federal and local authorities with a series of recommendations for ending the spiral of violence.

Why bears are coming out of hibernation early

first_imgAlan said that only happens if the bearsbecome “really desperate” –  which comes from hunger andthe need to feed their young. “They could definitely suffer,” he added.“It means a lot of cubs might not make it through spring.” That might not sound too weird – butbears aren’t normally spotted this early in the year, which makes this prettyunusual. But if there isn’t enough food, they’lllook further afield –  which means getting closerto humans. According to wildlife expert AlanWright, the early emergence from hibernation isn’t good for the bears orhumans. For him, people should be more worriedabout the bears than themselves. He says there will be “a lot of cubs”that will be born with parents who won’t be strong enough to feed them “theright kind of food.” Bears need food quickly after coming outfrom hibernation because soon, it will be breeding season. All of which has caused bears to be onthe prowl a bit earlier than normal. “They’ll be looking for it and therewon’t be a lot around –  because a lot of the plantsand smaller animals might not be there to feed them.” Alan said if humans come into contactwith bears, they should stay away. “They won’t be looking to attack humansunless the humans actually get in the way.” Last year, a Russian region declared a state of emergencyover dozens of polar bears looking for food in areas where humans live andattacking them.

GETTY IMAGES “Normally a bear will not want to engagewith humanity, they just want to do their own thing,” he said. That could have knock-on effects likegreater bear and human interaction, which would be potentially bad news forhumans too. If adult bears are unable to get hold of food, some cubs may not make it through spring. GETTY IMAGES They usually stay in hibernation –  which is like a deep sleep that helps them tosave energy –  and survive the winterwithout eating much. But Europe has just had its hottest ever winter –  and the US also experienced warmer temperatures in December and January –  which has been linked to climate change. Alan, who works at the Lancashire WildlifeTrust, says the big issue for bears is around the availability of food. FROM Russia and Finland to Canada and the United States, there’s been multiple sightings of bears around the world. What’sthe impact on bears? The bears in the Moscow Zoo emerged fromhibernation early but officials had been expecting it – and hadmeasures in place to make sure they could cope with the early exit. Female bears with cubs usually don’temerge until after April. “I wouldn’t want people to be toofrightened of bears coming out of hibernation. It’s scary but also very sad anddesperate too. “I think what we should do is understandwhy they’re doing that and the kind of situations they face.” (BBC)last_img read more
