November 6, 2017 in General

 

This year the winner of CRNI’s award is cartoonist and activist Ramón Esono Ebalé who is currently in detention in Equatorial Guinea. His work has been very critical of the current regime and he was arrested during a visit back to his home country from Paraguay where he currently lives.

The award was made at the annual convention of AAEC (The American Association of Editorial Cartoonists) in New York. In Ramón’s absence the honour was accepted by his wife Eloisa Vaello Marco.
