Senegal: Frontline Freespeech Workshop, 2 Oct

Index on Censorship in association with ARTICLE 19, Senegal, invite you to a workshop to launch Frontline Freespeech, a pilot project seeking to amplify the voice of individuals under pressure.

A wide audience are expected to attend the workshop: campaigners, community leaders, network co-ordinators, human rights defenders, journalists, bloggers, artists, scholars and representatives of minority groups facing free expression challenges alongside key human rights organisations and independent media.
