PEN delegates with Marcelo Ebrard

Photograph of PEN delegates meeting with Marcelo Ebrard, Mayor of Mexico City (2006-12) and Mexican Foreign Secretary (2018-), at the Canadian ambassador’s official residence in Mexico City on 27 January 2012. Ebrard can be seeing standing in the centre of the group, between Eric Lax (fifth from the right), treasurer (2007-13) and vice-president of PEN International (2019-), and John Ralston Saul, (seventh from the right), president of PEN International (2009-15). Amongst others present are: Émile Martel, fourth from the left, president of the Quebecois Centre (2000-16); Jennifer Clement, fourth from the left, president of PEN International (2015-); and Hori Takeaki, third from the left, secretary (2010-16) and vice-president of PEN International (2016-). This meeting took place as part of PEN Protesta!, a protest campaign organised by PEN International and the Mexican Centre, which aimed to act as a public demonstration of solidarity and an official appeal for accountability for the rising cases of murdered or disappeared journalists in Mexico. This photograph was taken by Alain Pescador.
