Dawit Isaak lyrics translated – Västerbotten Courier

The Swedish-Eritrean journalist Dawit Isaak has Tuesday been imprisoned in Eritrea for 13 years. Now starts the work to translate and publish some of his writings in English, French and German.

The project is supported by among others the Swedish Academy, the permanent secretary, Peter Englund sees Dawit Isaak as a crucial test for our common will to stand up for free speech.

“Freedom of speech is not only a prerequisite for what both writers and scholars do; it is also the whole and indivisible, “said Englund, according to a press release from Reporters Without Borders.
