Community radios in Mexico denounced a new reform that could de discriminatory (Twitter)
Indigenous and community radio organizations warned about the possible approval last week of a Communications Law that they say amounts to discrimination.
The organizations warned that a group of lawmakers is seeking to ensure that content from Indigenous people won't appear in media.
They say the new bill will prevent information created by these communities to appear in all broadcast media, thus limiting the rights of the audience.
The organizations explained that one of the modifications proposed was to eliminate the text that frames the obligations of media outlets to present plurality through linguistic and cultural diversity in Mexico.
