For Ashraf Fayadh says
Co-presented with Hugo House and others worldwide. Palestinian poet and artist Ashraf Fayadh is presently in a Saudi Arabian prison, under a death sentence by the Saudi government for apostasy. As part of a global effort to persuade the Saudi government - and the US and UK governments which have been to complicit with Saudi policies to exert their own pressure - to commute the sentence and free him, we will be hosting a short reading of his work and other work in solidarity. This has been initiated by the Berlin International Festival of Literature, endorsed by Nobel Literature Laureates Herta Müller, Elfriede Jelinek, Orhan Pamuk, members of PEN including PEN International president Jennifer Clement, Amnesty International, and many more.
