Human trafficking, from the point of view of media, is the theme that gathers journalists, communicators, jurists and academics during the Regional Gender and Communication Event, as a preamble to the Ibero-American meeting that will be held at La Havana at the end of the year.


Las Tunas, Cuba.- On the first day, Jorge Legañoa Alonso, vice-president of the Union of Cuban Journalists, reflected on the importance of systematizing these issues in the media agenda based on responsibility. He highlighted the actions that are done in the national context in this area. "We must articulate more our work, and give it more visibility," he said.

The M.Sc. Luis Enrique Perdomo, Professor of Law at the University of Las Tunas, offered some statistics on the growing number of crimes related to human trafficking and migrants smuggling. The director of the Muchacha magazine, Marilys Zayas Shuman, also shared her study results in the panel on this matter.

She called on press professionals to reflect these topics in journalistic materials, based on a more inclusive language, because it is up to us to raise awareness and contribute to prevention through communication. She explained some theoretical issues of remarkable utility and rigor.

The interventions of those who attend the Event had different nuances. For example, Yuset Puig Pupo, from 26 Newspaper, sought to strengthen alliances with the institutions and organizations involved. Danielle Laurencio Gómez, from the ACN, recognized the need to dominate legal elements that support our materials. Various communication products on gender were also shown.

Dayalé Torres Diéguez, of the Union of Computing Specialist of Cuba, offered her opinions on the digital gap on gender. This Friday, the event includes in its program the panel "Experiences of the inclusion of the gender perspective in the management of projects and initiatives," and the debate of more than ten communicative products.
