Obstacles to Prensa Latina violate free speech

Paris, May 6 (Prensa Latina) The ALBA-TCP France Collective on Friday denounced as a violation of free speech the obstacles that the US government is putting in the way of Prensa Latina's work at the UN and Washington, by delaying visas for its correspondents.

This is a new attempt against freedom of press and speech and the right of citizens to access to truthful information, the organization that brings together Latin Americans in solidarity with countries that defend their sovereignty and self-determination stressed in its statement.

Since December 2019, Prensa Latina journalists accredited at the United Nations headquarters in New York have been waiting for a visa to return to their work, a position with which the United States is failing to comply with its commitments as host country of this multilateral organization.

The ALBA-TCP France Collective described the delay in the delivery of the visas as an injustice and politicization.

The professionalism of the correspondents of this Latin American agency cannot be arbitrarily restricted; the UN does not belong to the US government just because they are there, it noted.

In a similar situation are Prensa Latina reporters in Washington DC, who, when traveling to Cuba on vacation in 2019, did not receive a visa to return.

The news agency with headquarters in Havana and offices in 40 countries in several continents offers since its creation, in June 1959, an alternative vision of the facts to that transmitted by the information monopolies, whose center is precisely the United States.
