THE 2015 VASYL STUS FREEDOM TO WRITE AWARD

The 2015 Vasyl Stus Freedom to Write Award is being posthumously awarded to Iranian political blogger Sattar Beheshti, whose torture and death in 2012 at the hands of Iran’s cyber police drew international outrage and became a rallying point for the Iranian dissident community and free speech advocates around the world. On April 30th, we will host a tribute to Beheshti and other Iranian writers and dissidents who exhibit monumental courage in the face censorship, oppression, and death.
