ABOUT THE VOICE OF MEXICO
The Voice of Mexico is an indepent website with the aim of informing a broad public in the English language.
Based in Mexico and Guatemala, The Voice of Mexico has no political or economic affiliation and operates free from the influence of third parties. Our obligation is to our readers and values of journalism alone.
The Voice of Mexico is, as of yet, a new medium, without the intention to compete with big, mainstream news media. Our focus is therefore not on breaking news, but context and meaning. As a reader, you will find both news and original reporting on The Voice of Mexico, but our main focus is on opinion and analysis.
Despite its name, The Voice of Mexico does not focus on Mexico alone. No nation is an island, and what happens in countries such as Guatemala and El Salvador, as well as the border region in the United States, matters to us.
The Voice of Mexico encourages readers to comment and participate, and welcomes collaborations of anyone who wishes to do so.
