To all our beloved friends,
The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines is celebrating its 22nd anniversary on July 30 (Wednesday).
We are taking the opportunity to thank all the people and organizations whose unwavering and generous support have helped the NUJP survive being listed by the military as an “enemy of the state”, grow to 55 chapters nationwide, and earn recognition as an organization that genuinely represents the interests of the working press and our aspirations for press freedom.
Since the date of our anniversary falls on the same period as the annual SONA (state of the nation address), we thought it would make our celebration more significant by encouraging critical analyses of the Philippine media’s performance through a forum on this subject, a state of the media report of sorts.
Thus, on July 30, we have lined up two exciting activities:
- PRESSing Times: A Forum on the State of Philippine Media, 9:30 to 11:30 am, College of Mass Communication Auditorium, UP Diliman
- Pasasalamat: 22nd NUJP Anniversary Get-together, 12 nn, Balay Kalinaw, UP Diliman
Different media leaders will speak in the forum: Isagani Yambot (print), Ed Lingao (TV), Noel Alamar (Radio), Joe Torres Jr. (Online), Joe Pavia (Community Media) and Mike Ubac (Media Unions).
During the “Pasasalamat”, we hope to bring together the oldies and newbies in news media. We also plan to launch the Antonio Ma. Nieva Media Training Program.
Please join us on this very important day.
The NUJP family
