The International Day of Journalists, this September 8, was celebrated by professionals of the sector in the Isle of Youth with an energetic comdenation to the murder and threat that hundred of colleagues are submitted in the world and the commitment of continuing the fight for the truth and against the lie organized by big medias at the service of the empire, as well as the support to the agreements of the recent Congress of the Latin American Journalist Federation (FELAP).

 They evoked the Czechoslovakian journalist Julius Fucik, murdered by nazi Germany in that date of 1943 and highlighted the current effect of his news report Al Pie de la Horca.

The members of the Association of Cuban Journalists (UPEC) met in the UPEC´s headquarter. There they also reiterated their support to the Declaration of Caracas and called to sthrengthen the role of the communitarian and alternative press to give a real imformation to people.

They highlighted too that while other journalists in the world are disappeared by mafias, corrupt administartions and manipulated by media dirty interests, Cuban professionals can speak about the total respect for life and the profession and how to improve the informative work and are compromised with people and the Communist Party, whose VI Congress, held last year, gave to the sector important missions.

Ana Esther Zulueta, President of the Municipal Delegation of UPEC, called to continue the comprehensive preparation as the only way to assume superior challenges, not only in the tradicional media, but also in digital supports and social networks with the truth and transformations of Cuba and of a planet with crisis that doesn´t stop to fight for a better world.
