PEN, ICORN, and Eaten Fish

Photograph of PEN and ICORN (International Cities of Refuge Network) members with Iranian cartoonist Ali Dorani (known as ‘Eaten Fish’) outside PEN International’s former offices in London in 2018. From left to right are: Cathy McCann, former researcher for the Writers in Prison Committee and Writers at Risk Protection Manager (2015-) at PEN International; Dorani; and Lotte Hovda Løkeland, coordinator of Friby Stavanger, the city’s programme for refugee writers. Ali Dorani, an Iranian refugee, was given the alias ‘Eaten Fish’ after the boat carrying him to Australia sank. He was locked up in the immigration detention centre at Manus Island, in Papua New Guinea as part of Australia’s ‘deterrence’ policy, where he suffered persecution. PEN International and ICORN, after a period of campaigning on his behalf, were able to relocate Ali Dorani to Stavanger, Norway, in 2018. Stavanger is among the funders of ICORN, and Ali Dorani is the 11th refugee writer to be welcomed into the city.

PEN, ICORN, y Eaten Fish

Fotografía de miembros de PEN y ICORN (International Cities of Refuge Network) con el dibujante iraniano Ali Dorani (conocido como «Eaten Fish») al exterior de las oficinas de PEN Internacional en Londres, 2018.

Ali Dorani, refugiado iraniano, recibió el nombre de«Eaten Fish» cuando se undió un barco que le llevaba hacia Australia. Fue internado en un centro de detención para inmigrantes en Manus Island, Papúa Nueva Guinea, parte de la estrategia australiana de disuación para la inmigración. Allí sufrió persecución. PEN Internacional y ICORN, después de un largo período haciendo campaña en su defensa, consiguieron trasladar Ali Dorani a Stavanger, Noruega, en 2018. Stavanger ees una de las ciudades fudnadoras de ICORN, y Ali Dorani fue el onceavo escritor refugiado acogido por la ciudad.
