Reporters without Borders: Cartooning is a dangerous profession

Reporters without Borders highlight eight individuals around the world whose profession as cartoonists is personally dangerous.

The shootings on 7 January in Paris and 14 February in Copenhagen showed the extent to which cartoonists are now the targets of extremist movements. In other parts of the world, it is often governments that try to silence them, using the law or violence. Reporters Without Borders is spotlighting eight cartoonists who are being threatened or persecuted because of their work.

Sometimes we’ve got a dangerous job. The more important it is not to give in to those who want to stop us drawing what we want to draw. A big “Thanks”! to Reporters without Borders.
