Cebu Press Freedom Week 2020 Tribute — “I Write during this New Normal”

Cebu Press Freedom Week 2020 Tribute — “I Write during this New Normal”


Honoring press freedom with a Manifesto for journalists


Upholding Press Freedom continues even when September ends. Why?

  • Cebu journalists traditionally commemorate Cebu Press Freedom Week around September 21. But upholding press freedom never ends.
  • In the Philippines, September 21 means a lot. It reminds Filipinos of the freedoms they lost in 1972 and won back in 1986. The week also recalls the gritty press in Cebu during those dark years. This memory should not be relegated to a day or even a month.
  • Espousing press freedom means maintaining trust, excellence, and credibility daily.

Thus, this Tribute to all who write news and content during this New Normal.
