GERMANY READS FOR HONG KONG
We are very delighted that the 19th international literature festival berlin and the German PEN Center are calling for a Germany-wide reading on 21 September 2019 for Hong Kong. The reading is intended to express solidarity with the democracy movement in Hong Kong, which among other things is directed against the extradition of regime critics to mainland China, police and military force and for the release of political prisoners.
At PEN Hong Kong, we are organising a reading on the same day to reaffirm our commitment to free expression and literature, and against attempts to silence voices advocating for freedom and democracy. We also encourage other groups in the city to do the same, or to join us.
More information to follow.
