Postcards for imprisoned writers

Two flyers (known as ‘postcards’ in PEN’s campaigns) created by the American Centre as part of their Writers at Risk campaigns. These particular postcards are left blank in order to encourage protesters to add their own designs, slogans, and messages of support onto them. On these someone has written the hastags “Free Wa Lone Kyaw Soe Oo” and “Ahmed Naji is Free”, referring to two separate cases of persecuted journalists that the American Centre supported between 2016 and 2019.

Cartes postales pour les écrivains emprisonnés

Deux prospectus (connus sous le nom de «cartes postales» dans le cadre des campagnes PEN) créés par le Centre américain dans le cadre de leur campagne Writers at Risk. Ces cartes-ci ont été laissées vierges afin d'encourager les manifestants à y ajouter leurs propres dessins, slogans et messages d'appui. Sur celles-ci, quelqu'un a écrit les mot-clés «Free Wa Lone Kyaw Soe Oo» et «Ahem Naji is Free», en référence aux deux cas de journalistes persécutés défendus par le Centre américain entre 2016 et 2019.

Postales para escritores encarcelados

Dos folletos (llamados «postales» en las campañas PEN) creados por el Centro Americano dentro de su campaña Writers at Risk. Estas postales se dejan en blanco para que los involucrados en la campaña puedan añadir sus diseños, eslóganes y mensajes de apoyo a escritores en peligro. En estas postales, alguien ha escrito los hashtags «Free Wa Lone Kyaw Soe Oo» y «Ahmed Naji is Free», dos casos de periodistas perseguidos por los que el Centro Americano trabajó entre 2016 y 2019.
