Editor in Chief of the bilingual Armenian and Turkish weekly Agos, Hrant Dink was assassinated outside his office in Istanbul on 19 January 2007. It is already one year since the 40–day memorial of Hrant Dink which we commemorated with a tribute to the man and his work. This year’s event will see the premier screening of a 50-minute documentary by Nouritza Matossian of in-depth interviews with Hrant Dink. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Matossian, writer and broadcaster Ayse Onal and Andrew Gardner, Amnesty International Turkey Researcher. A reception follows.
Amnesty International UK, in association with the Armenian Institute, English PEN and Index on Censorship invite you to this special event.
Tickets are free of charge but space is limited. Book online at www.amnesty.org.uk/events or call 020 7033 1585
