Dawit Isaak

Nights and days

On September 23 ten years had passed since the Swedish journalist Dawit Isaak and his colleagues at the Eritrean newspaper Seitit was imprisoned by the Afwerki regime. Today he is being held at the notorious “death camp” Eira Eiro outside of Asmara. The Isaak case has received enormous attention far beyond Sweden.

To Dawit Isaak

Dawit Isaak and his colleagues were imprisoned in Eritrea on September 23, 2001. He’s still being held behind bars because of using his right to express himself. Ida Börjel is one of the most interesting poets in Sweden right now. In this poem to Dawit Isaak, she uses her right to express herself to open a door into the memory and ten years of silence.
