NUJP celebrates 22nd anniversary; holds a forum on state of RP media

Just a break from my blogging hiatus and to maintain my sanity. Here's an invitation from the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines for everyone. I sure want to attend these events, especially the forum on the state of media.

NUJP's 22nd Anniversary and Forum on State of Phil. Media

The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines is celebrating its 22nd anniversary on July 30 (Wednesday).

We never made much fuss about our anniversary before and were at first thinking of keeping up the tradition this year.

However, we realized it is high time 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, we request the honor of your company at our twin anniversary activities:

1. Pressing Times: A Forum on the State of Philippine Media, 9:30 to 11:30 am, CMC Auditorium, UP Diliman

2. Pasasalamat: 22nd NUJP Anniversary Get-together, 12 nn, Balay Kalinaw, UP Diliman

Leaders from the following fields have been invited to speak in the morning forum: community, print, broadcast and online media, and media union organizing.

For inquiries, please call Joe (09209010013) or the NUJP office (09163658510, Karen).

Our warm regards,

Joe Torres Jr.
