Letter Writing Update: Enoh Meyomesse

Posted: February 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

The past two weeks we have been writing letters to, and on behalf of, Enoh Meyomesse. Meyomesse is a Cameroonian poet, activist, politician and blogger who was sentenced to 7 years in prison for the supposed theft and sale of 78 grams of gold on 27 December 2012 in a prosecution that English PEN believes to have been politically motivated. You can find out more about the details of his prosecution and imprisonment here.

We would encourage you to send your own letters and emails of protest. Find out how here.

We have also been translating Meyomesse’s poetry in order raise awareness of his work, so if you are interesting in translation from the French, come join next week, 11am-12pm upstairs in the Turl Street Kitchen.
