A young Mexican mourns his teenage cousin: Luis Antonio Rojas’s best photograph
‘Children have to deal with the fallout of the drug trade. They are the ones who can’t walk to their school in safety, who have to train to use a gun’In the mountains of Guerrero in south-west Mexico, there is a small town called Alcozacán. Violence is common in the area, which is strategically important for the drug trade. Violence has increased all over Mexico over the past few years, but some places including Guerrero have been particularly badly affected.The people of Alcozacán and its surrounding towns became more and more angry about the criminal groups terrorising their communities and what they saw as a lack of protection from the government. They felt abandoned, so formed community defence forces to protect themselves from the gangs and drug traffickers. In Alcozacán, there are no police as we know them. It is ruled – or taken care of, depending on your point of view – by a force made up of local people. Continue reading...

This Is How Long People Have Gone During Covid Without A Hug
One in four adults have not been hugged for more than a year, according to new research, and a third of adults feel there are fewer opportunities to make new connections now than there were during the first lockdown.The findings are from a poll by the cross-party think tank Demos, which spoke to 1,000 UK adults about their connections with others during the pandemic. It found that almost two thirds (64%) of respondents said they have not made a new friend for six months, and 44% have not done so in more than a year.More than a third (37%) reported that they have not been hugged for at least half a year, while 25% said they have not shared a hug for a year or more. Meanwhile 13% said they have not been asked how their day was, or talked to their neighbours, in the past six months or more.During the first lockdown, we were encouraged to have “virtual hugs” and connect with loved ones online.But research by Lancaster University recently found that “virtual contact on its own is not beneficial to older adults’ mental health”. It concluded that those over 60 who relied on virtual contact alone felt more lonely than others during the pandemic.In the midst of lockdown, HuffPost UK asked therapists why we crave human touch – and how to survive without it. “Touch is part of our life from the very beginning, at birth, and conveys love and care without words,” psychotherapist Lucy Beresford explained. “Physiologically, some studies have shown that skin-on-skin contact releases oxytocin – dubbed the ‘happy hormone’ – which helps mothers bond with baby, or lovers bond as a couple. Psychologically, the cuddling, stroking, massaging and nurturing that happens to us as a baby conveys a sense of being looked after and loved.“We carry that imprint with us as adults, so that welcome touch from someone makes us feel adored, loved or trusted.”Other studies have suggested that hugs or massages can reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, while triggering the release of serotonin, the hormone that regulates happiness.As daft as it may sound, self-hugging is a recognised self-soothing technique and may help if you’re craving human contact. Take a deep breath in, raise your hands to the sky, then wrap your arms around yourself tightly and exhale.Of course, nothing quite compares to the real thing. So if you know someone who may have gone without a hug, be sure to check in on them and let them know you care, even if you’re not ready to break social distancing just yet.READ MORE:Why We Crave Human Touch – And How To Survive Without ItHow To Give Yourself A Hug To Soothe Your SoulThis, Unsurprisingly, Is The Loneliest Place To Work In The UKI Adopted A Dog To Feel Less Alone During Covid-19.
