World Press Freedom Day is a day designated by the United Nations to raise awareness of the importance of freedom of the press and to remind governments of their duty to respect and uphold the right to freedom of expression enshrined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Also I found this at the unesco site:
“The rights to life and to liberty and integrity and security of person and also to freedom of expression are fundamental human rights that are recognized and guaranteed by international conventions and instruments.” (UNESCO Resolution, General Conference 1997)
UNESCO marks World Press Freedom Day by conferring the UNESCO/Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize on a deserving individual, organization or institution that has made an outstanding contribution to the defence and/or promotion of press freedom anywhere in the world, especially when this has been achieved in the face of danger.
The Prize is named in honour of Guillermo Cano Isaza, a Colombian journalist who was assassinated in front of the offices of his newspaper, El Espectador, in Bogotá, on 17 December 1986. Cano's writings had offended Colombia's powerful drug barons.

By Abena Busia
We are all mothers,
and we have that fire within us,
of powerful women
whose spirits are so angry
we can laugh beauty into life
and still make you taste
the salty tears of our knowledge-
For we are not tortured
we have seen beyond your lies and disguises,
and we have mastered the language of words,
we have mastered speech
we have also seen ourselves raw
and naked piece by piece until our flesh lies flayed
with blood on our own hands.
What terrible thing can you do us
which we have not done to ourselves?
What can you tell us
which we didn’t deceive ourselves with
a long time ago?
You cannot know how long we cried
until we laughed
over the broken pieces of our dreams.
shattered us into such fragments
we had to unearth ourselves piece by piece,
to recover with our own hands such unexpected relics
even we wondered
how we could hold such treasure.
Yes, we have conceived
to forge our mutilated hopes
beyond your imaginings
to declare the pain of our deliverance:
So do not even ask,
do not ask what it is we are labouring with this time;
Dreamers remember their dreams
when they are disturbed-
And you shall not escape
what we will make
of the broken pieces of our lives.
Abena Busia is the daughter of the late Kofi Busia, a former Prime Minister of Ghana. In her poem “Liberation” she lyrically describes the plight of women and their power to overcome violence and be free.

Here you have the lyrics..... so let's sing together!!!!
Performed by Elton John, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight and Steve Wonder
And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you
And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember
Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For/In good times and/in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for
Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you
And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my hearts
And then if you can remember
** Repeat three times
Well, my dear friend Elsita..... Keep smiling, keep shining......Knowing you can always count on me, for sure!
Do you have a comment about the song? Please, share it with us!

Hello, my name is Nelson Luis and I´m here to talk about my talents. I play basketball and soccer. My favorite basketball team is LosAngeles Lakers. I love this team!. I play acoustic guitar and electric guitar, and play music with my twin brother. He plays the drums. I can sing very well but I am a Shy person.
Victor and his bass guitar
My name is Victor Marquez and my hobby is to play the bass guitar, I have my own bass guitar and I have been playing it for two years, I play it everyday in my room so I can have some privacy. My favourite music band is "Dream theater" my favourite bass player plays there and is my inspiration to play, his name is Jhon Myung my favourite song to play is called "the ytsejam". My bass is a 4 stringed fretted bass. My bass brand is "phil pro", before I play bass I used to play keyboards but I just did't like it because I had to study a lot of different keys pattern and I didn't want to play guitar because there are a lot of guitar players in the world and I though that the bass guitars would be a good option an I liked it. My dream is to become a known bass player and play in a great band and be a good musician, I play my bass with two friends that play the electricguitar and the drums almost every saturday a few hours just to have some fun and I think t is the best talent I can do.

Here you can read the lyrics in English
Because I'm a Girl
I just can't understand the ways
Of all the men and their mistakes
You give them all your heart
And then they rip it all away
You told me how much you loved me
And how our love was meant to be
And I believed in you
I thought that you would set me free
You should've just told me the truth
That I wasn't the girl for you
Still, I didn't have a clue
So my heart depended on you, whoa
Although I'll say I hate you now
Though I'll shout and curse you out
I'll always have love for you
Because I am a girl
Been told a man will leave you cold
Get sick of you and bored
I know that it's no lie
I gave my all, still I just cry
Never again will I be fooled
To give my all when nothing's true
I won't be played again
But I will fall in love again
I loved you so
Now you leave me in the cold
How could this be
I thought that you'd only love me
Into the night
I will pray that you're alright
You hurt me so
I just can't let you go
You took advantage of my willingness
To do anything for love
Now I'm the only one in pain
Will you please take it all away
Never thought being born a girl
How I can love you and be burned
And now I will build a wall
To never get torn again
Here you can read and listen to the English version of this song: Because I'm a girl in English
