The EvaTasFoundation encourages publication and promotion of texts that are, no matter where and no matter how, subject to censorship.
Following the publication of two collections of work by banned Vietnamese poets, which were smuggled into the country in book form, there has arisen the opportunity to publish resistance prose, too, in the same manner and, along with this, to make it accessible to a wider audience via the Internet. Various Vietnamese writers have been asked to write a story based on the theme of freedom of speech. These stories have since been finished and translated into English. In this way an international audience can be reached as well.
We have contacted an accclaimed poet and novelist from El Salvador. Following the publication in Mexico of his last novel about a massacre by the Salvadorian army in 1989 he has been subjected to a series of threats and insults that forced him to flee his country for Spain. There he is seeking refugee status. We investigate the possibility to publish his story as a contribution to our series about censorship.
