In memory of MARY ELIZABETH MACIAS CASTRO.

Says Amnesty International (AI): "a clear threat to users of social networks in the regions of increased violence in Mexico", in reference to the beheading of Mary Elizabeth Macías Castro, chief editor of newspaper" Primera Hora "in Nuevo Laredo in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.

Recall that the macabre with the body was discovered on Sunday, with different computer equipment to the feet and beside the statue of Christopher Columbus.

And also remember that, according to AI, this year, only this year is officially declared dead Mexico 9-why all these bodies appear, how many more are informers, or use social networks? - Informers, but since 2000 have about 80 journalists died. This year is proving to be the bloodiest.

I do not think silence, for my friends, colleagues, collaborators, and especially the freedom to tell the truth. And if you make a mistake, since corrected. I've been wrong many times, even in ALLVOICES, I apologize, but we can not remain silent before the murders of these comrades in Mexico or wherever. I have started in Mexico for my many friends there, and because it is a cry what is going on two months of this part.

Going for you, wherever you are.
