Good news - a good step forward: "PEN centers around the world are calling attention to six other writers under threat. Nedim Sener and Ahmet Şik, also from Turkey, are on trial for their books on official investigations into a neo-nationalist organization. Reeyot Alemu, from Ethiopia, has been held incommunicado since her arrest in June. Tashi Rabten, a Tibetan imprisoned by the Chinese government, is serving a four-year sentence for “separatism.” Abdul-Jalil Al-Singace, from Bahrain, was picked up during the unrest in his country this year and is now serving a life sentence. And then there is Susana Chavez, who is among the nine journalists and writers murdered in Mexico in this year alone."
With the long list of political prisoners in China and all over the world, PEN has put Tashi Rabten on the list as one of the writers they are calling attention to. Our efforts are slowly, but surely showing results. We will not give up and keep pushing forward.
