Prensa Latina’s anniversary reaffirmed its founding objectives


Prensa Latina’s anniversary reaffirmed its founding objectives

Havana, Jun 18 (Prensa Latina) The celebration of the 63rd anniversary of the Latin American Information Agency Prensa Latina reaffirmed the founding objectives of reporting the truth in the light of the persistence of destabilization attempts by the hegemonic media today.

The precursors of the news agency, the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, Ernesto Che Guevara and its first president, Argentinean journalist Jorge Ricardo Masetti, established from the beginning that Prensa Latina aimed at confronting the campaigns of lies and demonization against the revolutionary process.

When they transmitted the first dispatch to the world on June 16, 1959, the United States Government predicted that the news agency would barely have a month to live and, for 63 years, 13 US administrations have tried to silence it.

The economic, commercial and financial blockade also marks the work of journalists who, like all the Cuban people, put creative resistance into practice to fulfill the function of informing truthfully.

On the occasion of this anniversary, congratulatory messages were received from organizations, outstanding figures and media organizations from Cuba and the rest of the world.

The letters highlighted the responsibility, morality and professionalism of journalists and correspondents from “PL”, an acronym by which more than 400 pieces of news are published every day.
