Take action

Campaigning for writers imprisoned or threatened because of their work – because they exercised their freedom of expression – is at the very heart of PEN action. PEN Centres all over the world adopt such prisoners as honorary members and appeal to authorities to free them. PEN centres also do their best to communicate these cases to the public and raise awareness. On this page you’ll find information on the honorary members of Finnish PEN as well as other threatened artists for whom you can make an appeal online. We’ll mail your appeal to the appropriate authorities.
