Which highlighted the inequity of access and distribution of information between countries and regions. In 2020 the Mac Bride Report will get 40 years since its declaration, but the the problems that were detected then in terms of imbalance and inequity in the conditions of access, circulation and production of content and information between countries and regions of the world seem to persist and even become more acute. To revisit the Report and recover its constants makes the democratic communication Utopia to persist.  1. elimination of the imbalances and inequalities which characterize the present situation; 2. elimination of the negative effects of certain monopolies, public or private, and excessive concentrations; 3. removal of the internal and external obstacles to a free flow and wider and better balanced dissemination of information and idea; 4. plurality of sources and channels  of  information;  5.  freedom  of  the  press and information; 6. the freedom of journalists and all professionals in the communication media, a freedom inseparable from responsibility; 7. the capacity of developing countries to achieve improvement of their own situations, notably by providing their own equipment, by training their personnel, by improving their infrastructures and by making their information and communications media suitable to their needs and aspirations; 8. the sincere will of developed countries to help them attain these objectives; 9. respect for each people’s cultural identity and the right of each nation to inform the world public about its interests, its aspirations and its social and cultural values; 10. respect for the right of all peoples to participate in international exchanges of information on the basis of equality, justice and mutual benefit; 11. respect for the right of the public, of ethnic and social groups and of individuals to have access to information sources and to participate actively in the communication process.
