|Pulitzer winning cartoonists' petition passes 1,500 signatures. Why not sign on now?
The petition that is seen here: https://cartoonistrights.com/petition/ has just passed the 1,500 signatures mark. Started by Pulitzer winning cartoonists Ann Telnaes and Signe Wilkinson, this remarkable effort has been successful beyond our expectations. It was recently featured on the back cover of Notebook, the official journal of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.
We have sent a copy of this petition to the Home Ministry in Malaysia in support of cartoonist Zunar who is at risk of being charged with sedition because of his cartoons about the head of state and his wife.
We invite all free speech loving people to sign on and make your voice heard.
