16th journalist killed in Mexico in 2018



October 3, 2018

The journalist and activist, Sergio Martínez González, editor of the newspaper Enfoque, was shot to death this Wednesday morning in Chiapas.

According to the information, at the time of the attack Martínez González was having breakfast with his wife, who was seriously injured.



The events occurred in Cacahoatán, municipality of Tuxtla Chico, near the municipal pantheon.

The woman was transferred to a hospital in Tapachula, while the aggressors know nothing.



Article 19, international human rights organization for the defense of freedom of expression and the right to information, demanded that the State Attorney General's Office carry out the corresponding investigation, as well as provide protection to the journalist's family.

"We are aware of the murder of Sergio Martínez in Chiapas. ARTICLE 19 documents the facts and requires the Attorney General's Office to investigate taking into account the journalistic work and provide security measures to his family. "


This is the second journalist who is shot to death in less than a month in Chiapas.

On Friday, September 21, Mario Gómez, a reporter and correspondent for El Heraldo de Chiapas, was assassinated when he left his home in the municipality of Yajalón, in Chiapas.

The journalist died in the hospital while he was being treated.

Thanks Stevectpa for posting this.  The journalist can either shed light or dim the light, on the truth.  By reading your post it seems that Sergio Martinez Gonzalez was trying to make good.

Someone that wasn't, was Leon Trotsky.  He was the main disinformation agent for Stalin and Lenin, he created the false message, that we also see today with the narcomantes.  We come for the benefit of the local, especially the working class (peasants), but not really -  for self interest.

Trotsky traveled by special train in the hinterlands of Russia, with it's own printing press, to put out the flyers, about the communist insurgence, to get everyone behind the movement.  Kind've like disinformation to the masses to further one's career and seeking power.

Trotsky, realizing he was being pushed aside by Lenin and Stalin, fled Russia to Mexico City.  He was one of the first seven members of the Politburo in 1917.  

On August 20, 1940 he was assassinated by Ramon Mercader, a Spanish-born NKVD agent.  He was attacked by an ice axe and died the following day.  Mercader, acted upon instructions from Joseph Stalin.  Mercader, was nearly beaten to death by Trotsky's bodyguards and spent the next 20 years in a Mexican prison for the murder.  

For those interested in this history, it is recommended that when visiting Mexico City, go the Trotsky museum.  He wrote the Trotsky's Testament, in which he expressed his final thoughts and feelings for posterity.

Personally, I say screw Lev Davidovish Bronstein, or Leon Trotsky,  Frida Kahlo, a great Mexican artist in the same vicinity, is much more worth the effort. Her art is more truthful -

I’m surprised the UN guard watch still hasn’t stepped in to smack the state around for not protecting it’s journalists.

The whole phone hack scandal was enough for UN intervention but nothing came of it...
