Blame the Recession

Why Poverty? is a cross-media event taking place in the week of 25 November – 2 December 2012, reaching more than 500 million people around the world via television, radio, Internet and live events. Cartoon Movement is partnering with news service Edg.ie and Netherlands Public Broadcasting to join the global debate with cartoons. We've chosen to go with the theme Blame the Recession, and focus on the ongoing global economic crisis, looking for sharp and humorous comments on the crisis, how it plays out in different countries, and in the world at large.
