FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR EVERYONE

Together with Norwegian writer colleagues, Freeby writers visited high schools to talk about their experiences with persecution and what it means to be deprived of their freedom of expression, and why freedom of expression is a right that is so important to fight for.

As an important part of Norwegian PEN's national project, a total of three school performances on freedom of speech were produced in the spring of 2016, aimed at upper secondary school students. Participants in the program are Friby writers and Norwegian colleagues with a special commitment to freedom of speech. 

Someone

Is standing over my head

And threatens:

Don't speak!

 

Someone is sitting across from me

And exhorts:

Don't speak!

 

Someone is lying next to me

And whispers:

Don't speak!

 

Someone is inside me

And frightens me:

Don't speak!

 

All this

Is the story of a journalist

Who doesn't speak.
