Day of imprisoned writers

People and places we have never heard of, still are people and places that are part of our world and part of our human family. We still are responsible to act non-violently on their behalf and speak out. Today, think of all the writers in prison, all the writers who have been murdered, just for speaking out. This year alone already 33 writers that Writers in Prison Committee of Pen knows of have been ruthlessly silenced. Free speech is a human right. And so is the integrity of the person.

I'll be off line till the end of next week. I am on the road and probably will learn a lot.

And by the way: Free all writers, free also Leonard Peltier.

Ahimsa: try not to harm what is alive.
