Elena Poniatowska at PEN Protesta!

Photograph of Elena Poniatowska, member of the Mexican Centre and vice-president of PEN International, 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. The Right Honorable Adrienne Clarkson, Canadian journalist and Canada’s Governor General (1999-2005), can be seen in the foreground. This photograph was taken by Alain Pescador.
