It is Still a Cover Up by Gabriel Basurto

Sunday, January 9, 2011 11:14 PM

In recent years, the drug war has overshadowed any news on the missing women of Juarez, which has become a desperate human right issue and is an ongoing epidemic that has been ignored for far too long. For well over a decade now, these young women have been kidnapped and subjected to horrors that are unimaginable. I wanted to bring this important issue back onto the forefront so that a new effort is once again made by Mexican authorities to help find these women and stop what is now called femicide once and for all. I knew that I was tackling a very sensitive issue, so that is why I chose to hide the faces under all the recent drug war violence articles. It is very easy to see why this issue has been drowned out, but now is the time to let the media see the faces that have been lost in the chaos. A greater effort must be made on both sides of the border, along with human right organizations so that women in Juarez can live without fear.
