Mexico is the second most dangerous country for journalists, only behind Syria a country currently in the midst of war. Since year 2000, 122 journalists have been murdered.


To give visibility of the problem through a symbol. We created a real bullet proof vest made of printed news written by dead journalists or news that reported their deads. To be part of the conversation, it was presented to media outlets on The Freedom of Speech Day.

We involved various specialists in the creation of this symbol that carried the names of each dead journalist. And to make it a long lasting reminder it will be presented in the Memory and Tolerance Museum in Mexico City.
