Reports of state-sponsored violence against journalists and independent media outlets in Egypt have continued to flow in since February 2, when supporters of President Mubarak first clashed with anti-government protestors. Take action by sending appeals directly to the Egyptian government.

“Truth is always the first casualty in war.” A Norwegian lawmaker nominates WikiLeaks for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, saying that the organization has contributed to the advancement of human rights and freedom of expression, in much the same way as last year’s winner, Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.

Three journalists, including the former president of the Belarus PEN Center Vladimir Neklyaev, have been released from KGB prison in Belarus, though their movements and activities are being tightly controlled. Many other journalists and human rights activists remain incarcerated.

On the last day of the Sundance Film Festival, Doug Liman directed a production of PEN’s Reckoning with Torture project featuring Robert Redford, Ellen Barkin, America Ferrera, and other artists and authors. As Dahlia Litwick writes in Slate, perhaps “it is only through the arts and a campaign to create public outrage that America can begin to reckon with the moral and human consequences of the U.S. torture policy.”

In the latest PEN podcast, Don DeLillo reads an excerpt from his novel Mao II at PEN’s benefit event for the Belarus Free Theater.

Is the web the “enemy of creativity”? Jim Holt reviews David Carr’s The Shallows: How the Internet Is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember in the London Review of Books.

Mother Jones reports that Harvard professor Michael Nye Jr. wrote a 2007 profile of Muammar Qaddafi for The New Republic as a paid consultant for the Monitor Group—a firm that was paid $3 million to “enhance the profile of Libya” and its leader.

The Committee to Protect Journalists finds evidence that members of the so-called “50 Cent Party”—Internet commenters paid by local government authorities—have been threatening foreign media. In more disturbing news, the web master of the Independent Chinese PEN Center Ye Du has been detained under charges of “subversion of state power.”

All through March, PEN will be celebrating Women’s History Month with a podcast lineup of some of our favorite women writers from the PEN archives.

In The Wall Street Journal, Gwendolyn Bounds cites research demonstrating more enhanced and ‘adult-like’neural activity in children who practiced handwriting.

“Everyone around the globe now associates Tahrir Square with freedom and revolution.” Banned books return to shops in Egypt and Tunisia. A book fair in Tahrir Square is also planned for the end of March.

Josh Gerstein reports that federal investigators accessed New York Times reporter James Risen’s bank records, credit reports, and phone logs in a CIA leak probe. Back in 2006, Risen spoke with Philip Gourevitch about press freedom in a PEN conversation.

Understanding Egypt

Over a year has passed since Egypt’s initial uprising, but the country is still facing unstable times and an uncertain future. What is really happening inside the most populous country in the Arab world? How accurate is the American media’s portrayal of events as they unfold? Egyptian-born analyst and correspondent Mona Eltahawy, who spent a decade covering the Middle East as a journalist for Reuters and the U.K. Guardian, shares her expertise on the complexities of the Egyptian revolution.

Doaa el-Adl is currently being sued by the Egyptian National Center for Defense of Freedoms for her comic in Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper that depicts Adam & Eve being evicted from heaven after they refused to vote for the new Constitution. The accusation of blasphemy stems from Adam being a prophet, not a depiction of the prophet Mohamed.

Her latest cartoon is above.

Update: A previous version of this post spelled Doaa “Dooa”.

Egyptian Journalists Protest Attacks on Freedom of Expression
Dozens of journalists protested on Wednesday at the Press Syndicate, in solidarity with the journalists who were attacked at the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) headquarters in Moqattam during clashes between protesters and MB members on Saturday.

High-profile media and political figures were seen at the protest, including former presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabahi, TV host Rim Maguid, prominent journalist Yehia Qallash, and Head of Press Syndicate Diaa Rashwan.

During the protest, named ‘Your Terrorism Won’t Stop Us’, the protesting journalists called for protecting their fellow journalists from being attacked by protesters, Muslim Brotherhood members, or security forces while they cover events. They accused the Muslim Brotherhood of attempting to silence journalists who expose their corruption, according to several journalists who attended the protest.

Post-Arab Spring Censorship on the Rise
More journalists, bloggers, musicians and other public figures are increasingly being summoned to court in an apparent crackdown on freedom of expression in Egypt and Tunisia. But they’re not going without a fight.
Egyptian TV satirist Bassem Youssef, who has been compared with United States news parody show host Jon Stewart, this past week had to answer to Egyptian prosecutors over charges of insulting Islam and President Morsi. Although an Egyptian administrative court threw out a lawsuit filed by a Muslim Brotherhood lawyer seeking to ban Youssef and his satirical political show, Youssef still faces other, similar charges.
Meanwhile in Tunisia, rapper Weld El 15 was recently sentenced in absentia to two years in prison for insulting the police. The two cases point to ongoing efforts by Islamist forces to use the courts to muzzle criticism of North African governments.
The fall of dictatorial regimes after the Arab Spring apparently hasn’t brought about any durable guarantees for freedom of expression. On the contrary, there seems to be an offensive against free speech in North Africa - yet this is being met with resistance, and the world is looking on.
