Worldwide Reading of selected poems and other texts in support of Ashraf Fayadh on 14.01.2016

The international literature festival Berlin (ilb) calls on all individuals, institutions, schools and media outlets that care about justice and freedom to participate in a worldwide reading of selected poems and other texts in support of Ashraf Fayadh, on 14 January 2016.

Ashraf Fayadh, a 35 year-old Palestinian poet and art curator, who lives in Saudi Arabia, has been sentenced to death by a Saudi court on 17 November 2015 for the “crime” of apostasy. He was denied access to a lawyer throughout his detention and trial.

Numerous authors are supporting this initiative, among them Nobel Prize for Literature laureates Herta Müller, Elfriede Jelinek, Orhan Pamuk and Wole Soyinka, as well as the president of PEN International, Jennifer Clement.
