15 Nov ‘Day of the Imprisoned Writer’

Today (15 November) is marked as the ‘Day of the imprisoned writer’. On this day writers gather to highlight and campaign on behalf of their counterparts who face unjust imprisonment, attacks, harassment and violence for their free expression work. What would they say are some of the reason why writers are being targeted and in 2017 why are we still seeing writers being persecuted?
