Havana, Mar 16.- Cuba celebrated this weekend the National Press Day, and so its journalists honored the foundation of the newspaper Patria, which first issue was published in 1892.
Tomas Terry Theater, located in the city of Cienfuegos listed among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, held the main ceremony on Saturday.
Patria, founded by Cuba's National Hero Jose Marti, stepped up the revolutionary media in favor of this country and Puerto Rico's independence.
This year's festivities have been dedicated to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of renowned reporter Enrique de la Osa, and the five decades of the first mass media founded by the Revolution.
Celebrations also included a workshop on restructuring the island's economy to face the current global crisis, and conferences by outstanding writers like 2009 Jose Marti National Journalism prize-winner Luis Sexto, who analyzed the life and work of Enrique de la Osa.(Taken from RHC-PL)
