THE INTER AMERICAN Press Association issued fourteen official resolutions condemning different actions against press freedom in the Western Hemisphere at the end of its Midyear Meeting held in Panama City.
One of the resolutions condemns the official policy of harassment by the Cuban government against independent journalists and requests that the government allow an IAPA mission on Cuban territory. Similar requests have been turned down or ignored in recent years.
The IAPA resolutions are designed to urge the governments to cease harassment against media and journalists, and to protect press freedom. They are generally addressed to the three branches of state power, and to other governmental offices in countries where press freedom has been affected.
