Prensa Latina’s defense of a new world information order highlighted

Havana, Jun 8 (Prensa Latina) The Latin American news agency Prensa Latina advocates the establishment of a new international information order, a defense that it maintains today, close to its 65th anniversary, the Argentine journalist living in Switzerland, Sergio Ferrari, highlighted.

In a video sent to its headquarters here, Ferrari acknowledged the contribution of the press agency in the search for an informative architecture that enhances “new information for another possible better world,” he said.

The journalist and collaborator of the Agency, created on June 16, 1959, also recalled the media’s contribution to creating the “pool” of Non-Aligned Press Agencies.

This initiative constituted a cooperation system among news agencies of the Non-Aligned Movement of the United Nations (UN), which lasted from 1975 to the mid-1990s. He also highlighted the essential values of Prensa Latina, such as the quality of information, assumed as a public good and not a commodity, and its permanent solidarity with smaller and more fragile agencies and initiatives.

The Agencia Informativa Latinoamericana emerged in the context of the so-called Operation Truth, which the triumphant revolutionary government of the island (January 1, 1959) activated to dismantle the defamatory campaigns against it.
