But rising security concerns, such as more than six attempts to hack the Memorial’s website, forced the Memorial to cancel the event.

  • Conflicting Cartoons

    Conflicting Cartoons

    Cartoonists can't agree who's to blame for the crisis in Ukraine. We have cartoonists from both Russia and Ukraine, and, perhaps not surprisingly, their opinions of the situation in eastern Ukraine differ quite a lot. But this debate is not limited to cartoonists from the countries involved in the conflict, and virtually every cartoonist is more or less positioned on one side of the conflict.

  • Cartoons Under Threat

    Cartoons Under Threat

    On our blog, a recap of last week's events. If there is to come any good out of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, it should be a reaffirmation of the importance of social satire. Political cartoons are in the spotlight this week, but we must work to keep them on the agenda. And terrorist attacks are not the only threat to political cartooning.

  • #JeSuisCharlie


    We are shocked and appalled by the futile attack on the headquarters of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Our thoughts are with the 12 people who died, those who survived, and their families. As cartoonists, we stand united in our belief that violence cannot be an answer to satire, nor will it ever succeed in ending satire.
