“These are not easy times for journalists and the free press, and that goes double for the courageous cartoonists with whom we work, many times under the heel of some of the most despotic and humourless bullies imaginable.”
Matt Wuerker – President, Cartoonists Rights
CARTOONISTS RIGHTS and Cartooning for Peace present their joint report – Cartoonists on the Line – covering the main trends in threats to the freedom of expression of editorial and political cartoonists around the world, as well as cases of note from the “post-pandemic” period, 2020 through 2022. This piece of collaborative work is supported by our partners FREEDOM CARTOONISTS. The report on threatened cartoonists is now freely available to download.
The 36 page, fully illustrated Cartoonists on the Line is now available as a pdf download.
