The stand shows off various publications by Prensa Latina, which was founded in Havana in June 1959, a few months after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. Prensa Latina shares books, magazines, and its experience of more than six decades in the defense of the truth of Cuba and the people from the South.
This is the first time that we attend the Fête de l’Humanité as a news agency since we have been covering this event for many years, and we can say that the people’s welcome and visits have been very good, Prensa Latina Information Vice President Luisa Maria Gonzalez noted.
The journalist highlighted the public’s interest in learning about the work formats of Prensa Latina, which is present in 40 countries on several continents.
We have seen the scope of our work in different languages and the value given to the existence of counter-hegemonic sources of information, Gonzalez said.
Prensa Latina’s stand is located in the area of Cuba Cooperation France (CubaCoop), an association that has been supporting Cuba’s socioeconomic development with projects since 1995.
We are very happy to receive Prensa Latina, whose work we recognize, CubaCoop President Victor Fernandez said on the first of the three days of the Fête de l’Humanité.
Gonzalez thanked Fernandez on behalf of Prensa Latina for his support and welcome.
