Alarcon Calls to Counteract Media War against Cuba

 (acn) Ricardo Alarcon, member of the Politburo of the Cuban Communist
Party, called on Wednesday in this capital to counteract, even more, the media war against the
island, during a workshop to mark the 50th anniversary of the creation of the National
Television Newscast (NTV).
 The president of the Cuban Parliament pointed out that this battle should be faced with even
more strength on the part of the mass media and particularly in the case of The Five, a case
manipulated by some and silenced by others from the beginning.
 Alarcon added that, in this regard, the challenge of all those struggling for the return of
Ramon Labañino, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez to
their homeland is very big. The latter, he said, is now under supervised release since October
7, after serving his sentence.
  In the presence of journalists, cameraman, editors and specialized personnel, he insisted
on the fact that Cubans have the right to receive truthful and timely information.
   The words of the president of the Cuban Parliament were preceded by those of journalists
Roger Ricardo Luis, Maribel Acosta and Rolando Segura, who focused on the main characteristics
of the media war.
 Also attending the workshop were, among others, Tubal Paez, president of the Association of
Cuba Journalists and Waldo Ramirez, vice-president of the Cuban Institute for Radio and
Television (ICRT); officials from the Ideological Department of the Central Committee of the
Cuban Communist Party, and directors of media outlets.
