Environmental activism is proving increasing dangerous in Mexico, according to a report in Mexico’s Vanguardia newspaper.

Six environmentalists who were fighting against mining projects and in defense of water and forests were killed in the country in 2012, and at least another 11 were killed between 2006 and 2011, the paper said at the end of December.
