Colombia-based media incubator Espacio announces the launch of Aztec Reports to report on the latest news coming out of Mexico, after having acquired the English-speaking news outlet in July, 2018.

“Mexico is Latin America’s second biggest country, and now more than ever, it is paramount that their story is told.”

The newly-launched Aztec Reports is an English-language news publication run by an organization of international journalists. Their mission is to deliver the most important and up-to-date information about Mexico and provide a truthful source of news reporting for a worldwide readership.

The Mexican publication is led by Tamara Davison — a British-born journalist and editor who went from covering culture in London to interviewing Nepali residents after the 2015 earthquake.

Davison’s recent investigation into the violence against Mexican journalists who uncover corruption was published by leading British news publication, The i newspaper. She has also worked for The West Australian and BEAT Magazine as well as The Bogota Post in Colombia.

“One year after the devastating earthquake, and faced with a new incoming president yet also unprecedented levels of violence, it is an incredibly fascinating and pivotal time for Mexico,” Davison said.

“The country is facing an attack on press freedoms, and it is paramount that the media community works  together to ensure the country’s true voice, and the colourful stories of its citizens, continues to be heard,” she added.

The policies of leftist president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador are anticipated to shake-up the country’s approach to cartel control, political corruption and crime levels.

Meanwhile, there are growing movements across the country in response to gender-violence, and turbulence continues in both international relations with the United States and approaches to mass migration.

“At the same time,” said Davison, “Mexico’s rugged landscapes, diverse cultures, languages, Mariachi and food, paint a picture of a vast, incredible country rooted in a culture unlike anywhere else around the globe. The spirit and uniqueness of Mexico has captured my imagination and underlines the essence of Aztec Reports‘ news reporting.

“Mexico is Latin America’s second biggest country, and now more than ever, it is paramount that their story is told.”

Davison has long abandoned the comforts of home for uncovering the world’s untold stories and has since lived in Australia and Colombia.
