Prensa Latina Exhorted Latin American Journalism to Unity

prensa-latina4Prensa Latina News Agency called today for the urgent coordination, integration and unity of Latin American journalism in defense of the struggles of the regional peoples.

During a workshop on Communication and Media at the 24th Meeting of the Forum of Sao Paulo, the Latin American news agency also convened an important meeting of journalists and international media in Havana on January 21 and 22.

Jorge Luna, director of Social Communication at Prensa Latina, stressed that it is a meeting to cover the major professional problems that threaten current and future generations of journalists.

Dangers of Latin American journalism, alternative media and globalization and the use of new technologies are some of the issues that will be addressed by the specialists, he said.

These debates will take place in the framework of the commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the founding of Prensa Latina, an agency that emerged after the realization of ‘Operacion Verdad’ (Truth Operation), which brought together, in 1959, 400 journalists to know the reality of Cuba, targeted by hostile campaigns from international agencies.

The workshop was attended by dozens of specialists from the region, who agreed on the need to coordinate the communication actions of the popular forces against the media campaigns of governments and right-wing media.
