English PEN’s ongoing PENWrites letter-writing campaign, which Irish PEN supports, now includes Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace, an award-winning academic, activist, and blogger from Bahrain. He has spent the last decade in prison, where he is serving a life-sentence for his role in the 2011 pro-democracy protests.
In July 2021, Dr Al-Singace launched a hunger strike to protest his ill-treatment in prison, in particular the confiscation of a manuscript he had been working on for years. Amid mounting concerns for his health and well-being, we continue to call for his immediate and unconditional release. We hope you will join us in sending a message of support and solidarity.

If you write to Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace as a member of Irish PEN, please say so in your letter. International support is important.
