USA: Amnesty International Banned Books - NEWS

Amnesty International, USA, Sept. 2, 2019.

Each year during Banned Books Week the American Library Associaon (ALA) calls attention to books that have been challenged in US Libraries. At the same time Amnesty International groups draw attention to people around the world who have been imprisoned, threatened, or murdered because of what they wrote or published or because of their work in the publishing or media industries. This year we look a small sample of many hundreds of worldwide cases while we continue to acknowledge and take action on unresolved cases from past years.
