CubaCoop in France praises Prensa Latina’s 65th anniversary

Paris, June 10 (Prensa Latina) The Cuba Cooperation France Association (CubaCoop) congratulated, on Monday, the Latin American News Agency, Prensa Latina, a few days before the 65th anniversary of its foundation, and it acknowledged its role as an alternative to the media monopoly.

For its national and international information work, the agency represents an indispensable source to know the reality of Cuba and Latin America in a complex world due to its dangers and challenges, CubaCoop President Victor Fernandez underscored in his message.

Known by the acronym PL, Prensa Latina emerged on June 16, 1959, a few months after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, to give voice to the just causes of the peoples of the South, ignored by the mainstream media.

Fernandez acknowledged PL’s work in disseminating issues of solidarity with Cuba and the effects of the actions conducted in France and globally against the US blockade, particularly the agenda implemented by CubaCoop, which has been promoting decentralized cooperation for almost 30 years.

He stated that we are proud of Prensa Latina’s support of the different projects and the roadmap of that cooperation.
