Through its You Tube channel, the Inter American Press Association has launched a series of videos highlighting its international campaign to counter violence against the press in countries such as Mexico, Honduras, and Colombia.

The five-minute videos call attention to the dangers of practicing journalism in the continent and denounce the impunity that prevails in crimes against journalists and attacks on media.

The first video of the series focuses on the work of the Mexican newspaper El Mañana, of the border city of Nuevo Laredo, where journalists have adopted the slogan "no news is worth a life." See other videos here.
