Eduardo is setting out to protect journalists from their most serious occupational disease in Latin America: physical aggression, including assassination, as a result of their investigative and reporting activities. Eduardo's idea is to establish a human rights center that would offer legal protection to journalists who have suffered aggressions as a result of their work.
