JOURNALISTS AT RISK: ROUTINE OR AN ISOLATED INCIDENT?

Thursday, August 7, 7:00 p.m. Education South Room 129 U. of A. Campus

Canadian journalist Zahra Kazemi was recently murdered while in the custody of Iranian security forces. Many Iranians would say her death is not surprising as journalists and intellectuals are routinely harassed, imprisoned and tortured. What is the state of freedom of expression in Iran? What can Canadians do to encourage the protection of human rights?

Panelists:

– Dr. Philomena Okeke, Women’s Studies Program, University of Alberta
– Jim Farrell, journalist, Edmonton Journal
– A representative of the Iranian community in Edmonton

Organized by the Iranian Social Cultural Association of Edmonton.
