  • 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.

As cartoonists, we stand united in our belief that violence cannot be an answer to satire, nor will it ever succeed in ending satire.
