PEN grows more important every year.
Last year, Turkey imprisoned 81 journalists, more than any other country in the world. Egypt came second in this ranking, with 25 jailed, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. The committee also noted that Mexico has emerged as the most dangerous place to be a writer or journalist; in March, four journalists were murdered – 40% of the total number killed worldwide so far this year. The country also has the most missing journalists – 13 out of a global total of 54.
