In the Weekly Freedom of Speech Roundup Sampsonia Way presents some of the week’s top news on freedom of expression, journalists in danger, artists in exile, and banned literature. This week news from Colombia, South Africa, China, Israel and Pakistan.
Journalist Claudia Julieta Duque has faced death threats in the past, but never from within the Colombian intelligence. She is still waiting to hear back from President Juan Manuel Santos about her request for an investigation.
Sampsonia Way is an online magazine sponsored by City of Asylum/Pittsburgh that seeks to protect and advocate for writers who may be endangered, to educate the public about threats to writers and literary expression, and to create a community in which endangered writers thrive and literary culture is a valued part of life.
