Call for Support for Bangladeshi Bloggers

Words by Simeon Gready - October 2015

From July-December 2015, I sat on the Index on Censorship's Youth Advisory Board, made up of a specially selected group of young people, from all around the world, with an interest in human rights and freedom of expression. Along with the other youth board members, I discussed and wrote short articles on freedom of expression issues specific to South Africa, while we met online once a month to discuss common issues and specific topics, designed to advise and inform the work of Index on Censorship.

The below video is the result of one such discussion. We were tasked with calling international attention to the plight of bloggers and writers in Bangladesh.
