ULAN proposes new information order for Latin America

Caracas,  AVN .- The Union of Latin American News Agencies (ULAN) proposes a new order for the information produced in the region, “not only to find a different view within the news spectrum but also for world recipients to have the possibility of comparing things,” said this Friday the representative of the Bolivian News Agency (ABI), Jorge Cuba.

After signing the ULAN constituent papers, in Caracas -and together with directors of news agencies from Cuba (Prensa Latina), Mexico (Notimex), Ecuador (Andes), Argentina (Telam), Guatemala (AGN), Paraguay (IP), Brazil (EBC) and Venezuela-, Bolivia”s delegate expressed that the supranational agency “will raise a view of the material reality the way we understand it.”

The next step will be a meeting of the executive committee in Ecuador for ULAN to continue “strengthening, developing and assuming knowledge in the course of time, commented the director of Argentina”s Telam, Sergio Fernandez Novoa, who was appointed president of the news agency alliance.

“Our desire, our aspiration is to have the enough intelligence and creativity to make this tool as much powerful as possible for the benefit of that which drives us, which is the common interest of our peoples.”

Argentina will head the agency”s presidency, while Venezuela will hold the secretary; the three committees stipulated on ULAN”s statutes will be held by Brazil, Cuba and Mexico.

It is expected that the Executive Committee will meet again in Quito next month of July. Similarly, the Cuban city of Havana was mentioned as seat of workshops to train journalists in information treatment. These journalists will be selected by their corresponding news agencies.

Fernandez Novoa expressed that by means of ULAN, “our voice will strengthen even more in the international context, beyond the individual efforts we have made for years.”

He also stressed that up to now exist transnational companies in matters of communication which control the information monopoly and highlight Latin America “just when there is a tragedy or disaster,” complying “more with foreign interests than national.”

In this connection, AVN president Freddy Fernandez said it is a challenge for ULAN to “talk about our reality from our dreams, from our point of view.” This effort has been boosted, he said, by the people”s encounter fostered by governments of the region.

“It is not coincidence that this is the moment in which news agencies hold this meeting,” Fernandez said. “Our peoples and our governments have fostered a complete series of initiatives of integration, which have showed a face of sovereignty, independence and will to build a reality to favor our people.”

The AVN president added: “That circumstance paves a way in which we may work with the precise bases to foster the rights of our peoples to information, communication and the possibility of looking ourselves as a continent with our own eyes.”
