FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND CULTURE

Freedom of speech is a right that everybody has to express his opinion, without censuring. And we understand freedom of the press as an extension of freedom of speech in any oral, written or printed media. But, does a real freedom of speech exist?

For this reason, the ideas expressed by that media will be imposed to other that do not have the same diffusion opportunity.

What do I ask to the new Government of Catalonia?
Written by Joan Vila Pont - Published on the 10 December 2010
As a Catalan person and as a member of a Foundation that believes in the effort culture values, I allow myself to ask to the new government a couple of things that are probably shared with the great majority of Catalan people.
