International Cartoonists at the Cartooning for Peace conference in Addis Ababa on World Press Freedom Day, May 2019

Just a reminder that while cartoonists here in the US are being fired and and otherwise diminished,  in other countries they get locked up (or get their fingers broken, or both).

Musa Kart is in prison in Turkey for drawing cartoons.
