Cuban Press Day is celebrated on March 14th on the occasion of the founding in 1892 of the newspaper “Patria” by the country’s national hero, José Martí.
Patria newspaper was founded in New York to “unite and love, and to live in the passion of truth,” and also to unite Cubans and Puerto Ricans around the idea of independence, as its creator stated, and which constitutes an ethical benchmark for Cuban journalists.
