Eduardo Lizalde speaking at PEN Protesta!

Photograph of the poet Eduardo Lizalde, president emeritus of the Mexican Centre, speaking at a protest event titled PEN Protesta! In Support of Journalists and Freedom of Expression. This event, which was organised by the Mexican Centre in collaboration with PEN International, was held at Casa Lamm in Mexico City on 29 January 2012, and was staged as a public demonstration of solidarity and a demand for accountability for the murders and disappearances of Mexican journalists. It was part of a longer campaign held in January 2012, during which PEN delegates met with activists and authorities and pushed for governmental action to protect journalists and freedom of expression in Mexico. John Ralston Saul, president of PEN International (2009-15), can be seen sitting just to the front and left of Lizalde, turning to listen.
