PEN Portraits of Imprisoned Journalists


Pen Portraits of  Imprisoned Journalists
curated by Amnesty UK


17-29 feb 2020, Southampton Central Library


On September 18th, 2001, the Government of Eritrea announced that all non-Government newspapers had been closed down. Eleven journalists were arrested and, since then, have not been seen by family or friends. In the following years, even journalists working for the Eritrean Government have been ‘disappeared’. Eritrean journalists in exile set up PEN Eritrea to fight for the freedom to write and to campaign for the freedom of Eritrean journalists and writers. As part of that campaign, PEN, working with the artist Gianluca Costantini, produced portraits of fifteen of the journalists. Amnesty International UK is arranging for the display of these portraits throughout the UK.


They will be displayed at Southampton Central Library from the 17th to the 29th of February 2020.

RED CARD! Egypt uses Africa Cup of Nations as cover for abuses.


We undersigned organizations and individuals draw your attention to continuing, grave human rights violations in Egypt, including the arbitrary detention of labor rights lawyer, Haytham Mohamadein, and Mostafa Maher, a former peaceful political activist and brother of April 6 Movement co-founder Ahmed Maher. Both Mostafa and Haytham were arrested in May 2019, secretly detained for a long period of time and denied due process guarantees. They were charged in a State security case on the basis of “suspicion of intent” to publicly criticize the Egyptian government’s human rights record during the Africa Cup of Nations football tournament. Noam Chomsky, Aya Hijazi, Brian Dooley, Bahey eldin Hassan, Holt McCallany, Khadidja Nemar, Gianluca Costantini, Michelle McElroy and Brad Rowe  Continue
