On his Twitter account, the president highlighted the 130th anniversary of the founding of Patria newspaper by National Hero Jose Marti.
“A day of celebration and reflection, this March 14. For the 130 years of Patria and for the challenges of the Cuban press in the current hour of #Cuba. We are honored to accompany revolutionary journalism when it declares: #HacemosPatria,” he wrote.
Previously, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez described the country’s press as brave, committed and a faithful defender of truth in the face of lies and manipulations.
“With Marti’s ethics as the path of Cuban journalism, #HacemosPatria (#WeDoHomeland) in the face of those who do not cease in their efforts to destroy the Revolution,” the foreign minister tweeted.
