Avilanian journalists speak out for a new press model (+Photos)

Professionals from the avilanian press held this Tuesday the Provincial Assembly of the Union of Cuban Journalists (UPEC) in the territory, with the commitment to achieve a new press model that responds to the current requirements of the country and is closer to the interests of the readers.

Ricardo Ronquillo Bello, national president of UPEC, underscored the threat posed by the rise of a counterrevolutionary media system that tries to discredit the public press and steal its audiences.

Some of the saddest events that we have experienced in recent years were caused, in part, by communication problems, hence the importance of achieving a law that regulates this process, asserted the leader of the Cuban journalists.

Ronquillo Bello regretted that the aforementioned bill was misinterpreted by some sectors of society, while he defended its importance as a way to achieve communication closer to the people and a truly socialist press.

The analysis of the report presented to the plenary prompted various reflections on the challenges facing the union and the ways of doing things that prevail today.

Enrique Dámaso Rodríguez, president of UPEC in Ciego de Ávila, pointed out that there are still many biased, complacent and triumphant works that generate rejection of official information and contribute little to public opinion.

The union leader called for the production of solid and attractive content, in order to prevent audiences from moving towards information platforms and media that manipulate facts and spread false news.

We cannot afford the journalism that is carried out today in many media outlets in our country, said Katia Siberia García, a reporter for Invasor, referring to bad professional practices in the Cuban press.

Osvaldo Gutiérrez Hernández, photojournalist for the Cuban News Agency, pointed out as the paths of the next provincial executive the revitalization of the Casa de la Prensa (Press house), achieving a better functioning of UPEC and establishing more efficient ways for internal communication between affiliates and their representatives.

Roberto Carlos Delgado Burgos, director of the Invasor newspaper, stressed that the UPEC base delegations are the main ones responsible for solving the problems of the organization and its affiliates.

At the closing of the balance, the avilanian journalists elected a new UPEC provincial executive chaired by Pastor Batista, correspondent for Bohemia magazine in Ciego de Ávila, and made up of Katia Siberia García, Osvaldo Gutiérrez Hernández, Mayté Vega Pardo and Román Romero López.
