Report on the situation of cartoonists worldwide

May 11, 2017 in General

Cartooning For Peace have produced an excellent and detailed report highlighting the difficulties and persecution of cartoonists around the world. The publication coincided with World Press Freedom Day.

It includes pieces on Turkish cartoonist Musa Kart who we covered on here and a really good piece by CRNI campaigner & PCO member Terry Anderson on Eaten Fish.

There are some harrowing stories and very powerful cartoons. Very well put together too. You can read it here.

  1. European cartoonists and journalists are very fortunate in comparison with those in a whole string of countries worldwide where the power of cartoons is proven time and time again by tyrants locking them up for daring to oppose. And yet, and yet, certainly UK publishers are using cartoons in all their forms less and less. Why should this be ? Have UK publishers fallen out with humour ?
