Trump-Putin Summit protest

YouTube compilation of videos of a PEN event titled Writers for Freedom of Speech, which were filmed and produced by Reactor Films in Helsinki on 16 July 2018. This collection of videos shows poets, writers and musicians taking part in an event that was organised by PEN International to draw attention to cases of writers in prison, in particular that of the Ukranian filmmaker Oleg Senstov, who was arrested in May 2014 for speaking out against the Russian annexation of Crimea. This protest was held during the Russian-United States summit (also known as the Trump-Putin summit), which took place in Helsinki on 16 July 2018. Poets who participated included Sofi Oksanen, Sirpa Kähkönen, Helena Sinervo, and Nina Honkanen. PEN members included Polina Kovaleva, programme director of the American Centre; Thomas Melia, Washington director of the American Centre; and Veera Tyhtilä, chair of the Finnish Centre Peace Committee. These performances took place as close to the Presidential Palace in Helsinki as possible, which is where Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump met for the summit.
