Dying For The Truth: Blog Del Narco is a Book

Das spanische Blog Del Narco schreibt seit drei Jahren detailiert über die Verbrechen im mexikanischen Drogenkrieg, die Macher trauen sich als einziges Medium in Mexiko, die eskalierende Gewalt zu dokumentieren und offenzulegen. Ich weiß nicht wirklich, ob ich das lesen kann, aber ich werd's definitiv versuchen und hab' mir das Ding grade auf meinen Kindle geladen.

Hidden by veils of Internet privacy due to death threats, this 30-year-old blogger has become a local hero and is documenting Mexico’s decline. She reveals the horrible savagery of the drug cartels with gruesomely graphic pictures, videos and stories of beheadings, death squads, paramilitary cops in ski masks dragging people off and public humiliation. Blog Del Narco’s highly viewed site (Alexa rated 50 in Mexico, 5,000 in the US, 128,000+ twitter following) has become an international mecca of information into a world that few have gone, and even fewer have lived to tell about. […]

Dying for the Truth addresses narco-censorship, government corruption, and an ever-rising death toll all driven by American demand for the products controlled by the cartels and their government collaborators. […] The anonymous author is the only person in Mexico daring to write the truth about the violence and corruption of the horrifying drug war in a country that is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous in the world. Her life has been threatened dozens of times, and her informants have often been killed. It’s a certainty she will be horribly murdered. Both the cartels and the government have searched for her. Her crime: reporting the truth.
