Tamaulipas-Oaxaca: Two Journalists killed in less than 24 hours

Posted by DD Republished from in part from JOURNALISM IN THE AMERICAS Blog and Proceso

Journalist killed in Tamaulipas, Mexico is second journalist killed in that country in less than 24 hours


Less than 24 hours after the death of a journalist in Oaxaca, a reporter in Tamaulipas state has been killed by a group of armed men. She is the eighth journalist killed in Mexico this year.

On the morning of June 20, journalist and teacher Zamira Esther Bautista, 44, was shot while in her car outside of her home in Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas state in northeastern Mexico.

According to Proceso, Bautista was a freelance journalist and teacher, but had covered the social section in newspapers El Mercurio and La Verdad de Ciudad Victoria.


A cartulina left with the journalist attempted to link her to members of a criminal group in the city, according to a statement from the state government.   (DD the statement from  The Grupo de  Coordinacion  Tamaulipas simply referred to her as "a woman was deprived of her life..." . It did not identify her as a full time teacher and a part time journalist)

 The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) explained that these types of notes are common in the city and state “as means of seeking to discredit citizens and justify ‘the settling of accounts.’”

 Proceso reported that she was killed at 6:30AM:as she was entering her car to go to shool to her teaching job.  It reported that seconds later a group of armed men in another car drove up and shot her.

 Proceso also reported that with this case "more than 15 journalists killed in Tamaulipas since 2010 to date, and about 17 are missing. .and that  Tamaulipas is the only state in Mexico where organized crime groups have banned journalists write about violence

According to Journalism in the Americas Blog Bautista’s murder comes just one day after that of Elidio Ramos Zárate, who was killed in Oaxaca reportedly while photographing a robbery in-progress at a convenience store. Zárate had been covering the intense confrontations between police and teachers in that state.

 Teachers in Oaxaca have been protesting reforms for about a week. On June 19, violence came to a head as police tried to clear a roadblock in Nochixtlan where authorities would later say six were killed. Ramos Zárate was killed in nearby Juchitán.
Ivonne Flores, editor of El Sur, said in an interview with Radio Fórmula that a group of masked men threatened Ramos Zárate and other co-workers on June 18 in order to stop them covering the violence, according to Animal Politico.

The journalist reported that there are no conditions for working in the state of Oaxaca. “We are exposed to all (…) and we cannot do our work, we cannot freely take a photo, cover material as it should be done, to keep society informed,” Flores said, according to Animal Politico.

 In 2015, Mexico saw an attack against journalists every 22 hours, according to the annual report from freedom of expression organization Article 19 Mexico.

 According to a report by La Sociedad Interamericana de Prensa (SIP)  Ramos Zarate, the journalist killed a day earlier, worked for El Sur, Independent Diario del Istmo, in the city of Juchitan de Zaragoza, Oaxaca. 

The other reporters finalized this year are: Manuel Torres (May 14), Francisco Pacheco Beltran (April 25), Moses Dagdug Lutzow (February 20), Anabel Flores Salazar (February 8), Reinel Martinez Cerqueda (January 22 ) and Marcos Hernandez Bautista (January 21).

      The world doesn't care,doesn't give two fucks,they talk a nice talk though,like a lot of people,but when it comes to action,nah shit gets done.An why should it.
      Mexico is an insulated country,they dont want anyone specially certain people poking their noses in,so Mexican gov just goes on stirring up jingoism and nationalism and the sheep lap it up and blame everyone else.Why and how could anyone help Mexico?

    8. Past experience has taught us that the "help" we get is real expensive, the mexican independence war and revolution, still cost the mexicans, earning 3 dollars a day, not an hour as some misinformed people say...
      --forget about helping the mexicans, just GET THE FACK OUT OF THE WAY with your motherfacking bullshit of arming and financing the mexican governing narco-mierdocracia with billions of dollars to help them stay in power, because that is problem #1, the US and their "help", since the 1700 until today...gringos go home!!!

  7. The deafening silence of the mainstream media in Mexico is proof positive that a narco shadow government is really in control of the country. The centralized bureaucracy has failed the Mexican people and has been replaced with narco corruption and death. This swift is embodied by the silencing of the media. Seems like another revolution may be in order...

  11. Journalists in Mexico really are a different breed.There is no doubt that PRI has given tacit approval to kill or threaten any journalist who dares to make Mexico look even worse by telling simple truths.Look at the way they left Zamira Bautista and then insinuate she was cartel aligned,Ramos Zarate knew the definite danger and still worked on.These are the kind of human beings who probably never consider using violence.The PRI government by its ignorant disregard shows open contempt for journalists by saying nothing much less doing something.This is why we should show news in all its brutality,people such as these give their lives for it,would we?Thanks dd,news like this needs telling

      Most of the idiots here wont have a clue about the disappeared Native Women of Canada.They think only Mexico/US matters and the US brings all the worlds ills.One or the other.It is tragic so many beautiful indigenous women are murdered and tossed away like rubbish

      Delete
    3. They have found that many of the Native women were murdered by spouses and boyfriends and many on reserves have many social problems like drinking and drugs more than the average Canadian and many like like 3rd world countries because the Canadian government gives money to the Chiefs and like Mexico they keep it for themselves rather than disburse to the people.

    4. No offence, Canadiana, and you're certainly entitled to your opinions on First Nations Canadian women and girls gone missing and murdered. These are systemic crimes and race based. The viewpoint you've expressed above echoes your former PM Harper's spin. The crimes number well above 2,000 to date along the Canadian Highway Of Tears. The RCMP itself is currently under investigation on several counts, including Alberta's, Saskatchewan's and British Columbia's "Horsemen" with regard to the murdered and disappeared in Western Canada and Southern Ontario. To paint mass murder, sexual assault and poverty as the fault of the Aboriginal Canadians themselves smacks of a deep seated racist neurosis, one which is far more pervasive throughout English speaking Canada than most people would care to believe. Nice move on lifting Visa restrictions for Mexicans in exchange for Canadian beef imports to Mexico ...

    5. 4;51-i highly doubt your 1st paragraph is true.Yes there's a lot of bureaucracy and paperwork fees to pay for setting up a business here but it's the same for everybody a level playing field and there's receipts for everything you can write off at tax time.Can I write off my mordida in Mexico for a business tax writeoff.I highly doubt it.I'm starting to have 2nd thoughts on free trade.If a business sets up in another country they should only be allowed to sell there instead of taking advantage of the low wages to capitalize.Wages are sometimes a supply and demand thing.Here when we had the oil boom minimum wage was $11.20 an hour but business were paying more for those jobs because they couldn't find enough people to work but I agree they shouldn't pay slave wages,a little higher yes but not at Canadian rate in Mexico.When Mexico finally has all the world's business there will be so many jobs it will go up naturally along with the cost of living like housing so hang in there.There must be a shortage of work or they wouldn't pay such low wages.

    6. Well, no thanks, I was making about 6 dollars a day a while ago in mexico, and went to texas to make $1.25 dollars an hour but I did not stay there for long, texas was just a bump on the way, where I never got paid for my second quincena.

      Delete
    7. $1.25 an hour in the US?You must be joking.The cost of living is much higher in the US.Those are definitely slave wages.Another thing if you work under the table you can't always trust a guy to pay you especially on your final cheque. Another thing is he will pay you less as he can't write it off at tax time.
