THE Morning Star NUJ chapel condemns the violent attack on Nicaraguan journalist Suyen Cortez by an opposition supporter while at a supermarket in Managua last week.
We extend our full support and solidarity to Ms Cortez and see this as the latest cowardly attempt to silence journalists by the Nicaraguan opposition.
The Morning Star NUJ chapel also sends solidarity to Channel 13, where Ms Cortez is a presenter, and will continue to build links with journalists in Nicaragua.
Working-class solidarity is an international issue and we stand with our sisters and brothers: an injury to one is an injury to all.
As journalists we regard it as a fundamental right and freedom to be able to do our job and report the news without fear and intimidation.
Last Wednesday’s cowardly attack should be condemned by all international press freedom and rights organisations.
We call on them, and the National Union of Journalists, to issue urgent statements of support for Ms Cortez.
This was an act of misogynistic violence and an attack on press freedom.
Journalism is not a crime. Solidarity with Suyen Cortez.
