The international literature festival berlin [ilb] will convene a worldwide reading for freedom of expression and assembly on 9 September 2020. These readings are intended to draw attention to the situation of freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and human rights in Hong Kong, which were adopted by the United Nations in Paris on 10 December 1948. Individuals, schools, universities and cultural institutions globally will hold readings on the same day.
This online reading is curated by: The Freedom to Write Campaign (Ireland), Irish PEN/PEN na hÉireann and Letters With Wings. These all-Ireland groups work to support freedom of expression and campaign for the release of imprisoned writers.
Kate : "I'm really looking forward to reading in this Festival of Worldwide Readings for Democracy in Hong Kong on 9th September. It feels good be a part of a voice that stands up against authoritarian, repressive and opaque power."
