The Federation of Journalists of Peru (FPP) was founded on July 18th, 1950. It is an unaffiliated and independent journalists’ group with the function of trade unions, and a professional non-profit association.
The FPP acknowledges that freedom of speech is a basic human right. Without freedom of speech, there will be no democratic society. Therefore, everyone has the right to equally express his or her ideas through the media.
The FPP now has 75 branches across Peru and 2 branches overseas, with over 9000 members. It owns an 11-storey building only 50 meters away from the Peruvian Congress, which serve as FPP’s office as well as its radio and television reporters’ platform.
