Abstract: 

On March 10, 2022, the Parliament of the European Union was so alarmed by the number of assassinations of Mexican journalists in the first months of the year that it passed the Resolution on the situation of journalists and human rights defenders in Mexico.  [1] The Resolution passed 607 votes to 2 with 73 abstentions, and referenced that “institutionalized and widespread corruption, abetted by a deficient judicial system, is engendering an endemic problem of impunity, with around 95% of journalists’ murders going unpunished.”  [2]
