Dear Friends and colleagues, Sisters and Brothers in the Ethnic Press and Media:

As we are entering the first week of May, I want to bring to your attention that now we are working intensively to stage our annual exhibition of the Ethic Press at the Rotunda of the Toronto City Hall.


At this point I can assure you that more than 50 publications received and processed in order to participate in the event. We organize this event annually on the second week of May, as this week has been declared by the UN in honour of the “Freedom of the Press.”

In Canada, as proud citizens of this great country, we do enjoy this benefit and also we try to help others, all over the globe, struggling to survive against corrupt government and tyrants.


On Monday May the 9th, 2011 at 6:00 pm, we are planning to for an official opening of our exhibition. To this extend we have invited citizens and friends of our organization to celebrate with us. Also, His Worship Rob Ford, the Mayor of the City of Toronto, will be the co-host welcoming our guest of this event. After the speeches we will organize a reception, an evening with wine, a variety of food and entertainment for our guests while the Mayor and other dignitaries take pictures at the front of the various publications in display. A committee of three members under our ombudsman with two more persons out of the organization will select the best publications from the display and recommend them for recognition later this year.


This year also we host a special exhibition of 35 Artists of Iraqi/Kurdish origin, as a salute to the struggle of the Kurdish people for freedom and democracy.


This exhibition is a common venture of NEPMCC and the “Web news Printing CO Inc.” (Patrick Callaghan, President), “CHIN RADIO” (Lenny Lombardi, President), and “Market Dimensions” (Asif A. Khan, President)


For this reason, today I am asking all the members of the sector to submit two copies of their publication (if possible the best of the year) for the exhibition, and also YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE AND HONOUR WITH YOUR PRESENCE THE OPPENING CEREMONIES and the reception.


Also we need a number of volunteers for next Sunday May the 8th to help us set-up and prepare for the exhibition. Anyone interested please write to or


We thankfully acknowledge financial help received from the Department of the Canadian Heritage, Publications Assistance Program, (PAP), towards this operation.


I am looking forward to welcome you all here.


With every Respect Due,


Thomas S. Saras

President and CEO
