In Tijuana, a Mexican city on the border with the United States, being a journalist can cost you your life. But reporters Sergio Haro, Adela Navarro Bello and their colleagues with Zeta magazine have chosen to run that risk. Amid a myriad difficulties, every week they publish an independent magazine which has been disseminating investigations into drug trafficking and corruption for thirty-two years, running the gauntlet of the drug lords and of the corrupt hierarchies at the top of the institutions in one of the most dangerous places on the planet. Over forty reporters have either disappeared or been murdered in Mexico since December 2006, when former President Felipe Calderón launched a campaign to repress the drug cartels. Calderón's operation has failed to reduce drug trafficking and violence among the cartels for control of the territory, while the risks are still high for journalists and the last free voice in Tijuana is in danger of being silenced.
