Collen to stay safe from persecution.

Hey, I'm a Norwegian filmmaker and human rights, activist. I got to know Collen almost two years ago. He is a Zimbabwean poet and human rights, activist. For his activism and fight for justice and democracy in his country he has served many years in prison and has been subjected to cruel torture. His health is very affected by the torture, and he needs medical help to be able to take care of himself and his 13-year-old daughter. What he likes best is to write poems, but the Zimbabwean authorities refuse to publish what he writes and threaten new imprisonment if he shares his poems with the public. Artistic freedom of expression is very important for creating open democratic societies. And it is a human right to speak out. Collen needs all the support he can get. Only then can he ensure a decent life for himself and his daughter.
