Jailed for Words and Art: Uplifting Critical Voices and Fighting Censorship
You have the right to say what you think, share information and demand a better world. Exercising these rights – without fear or unlawful interference – is central to living in an open and fair society. Yet across the globe governments have increased censorship and routinely imprison people for speaking out!
This event will feature the works of critical voices that governments are trying to silence. We will hear from local advocates who work to promote and protect free speech!
