Unanue, trump, truth

Increíblemente, sobre todo para los que fuimos sus amigos, han pasado 25 años desde el asesinato del periodista Manuel de Dios Unanue, en un restaurante español de la ciudad de Nueva York. El coraje de denunciar a los capos de la droga colombianos y su venenosa presencia en la que fue su ciudad, le costaron la vida.

Unanue, que había sido director de El Diario-La Prensa, el diario en español más antiguo del país, tenía 48 años cuando murió el 11 de marzo de 1992. Era el apogeo de los carteles de la droga colombianos y su influencia perniciosa se extendía a Nueva York, especialmente a Queens, donde Unanue vivía y moriría. Su muerte fue un lúgubre recordatorio de la fragilidad de la libertad de prensa, incluso en EE. UU.

Unanue, trump, truth

Incredibly, especially for those of us who called him our friend, 25 years have passed since the murder of fearless journalist Manuel de Dios Unanue, at a Spanish restaurant in New York City. The courage to expose Colombian drug capos and their poisonous presence in his city, cost him his life.

Unanue, the former editor of El Diario-La Prensa, the oldest Spanish-language daily paper in the country, was 48 when he was killed on March 11, 1992. It was the heyday of the Colombian drug cartels, and their pernicious influence extended to New York, especially Queens, where he lived and died. Unanue's death was a grim reminder - and a reality check - of how fragile freedom of the press is, even in the U.S.

The hijab defines much more than an extremist political movement. It is also a way of life.

¿A quién oprime el velo?

La identidad de las mujeres musulmanas parece ser ahora asunto de todos. Es momento de echar un ojo a la historia y preguntarnos qué hay de verdad y qué no en lo que nos cuentan los medios de comunicación en su batalla por la supervivencia del Occidentalismo.
