Have spent the morning contacting the authors (via Facebook & Twitter) who are scheduled to attend the Irrawaddy Literary Festival sponsored by the Burmese military in November. Many of them identify as liberals & even human rights advocates. Some may consider it harassment but to my mind if it isn’t education that will dissuade them from attending, it’s shaming. You don’t get to be part of whitewashing genocide just to peddle books without facing consequences.
