Cartooning for Peace presents its new book “AFRICA”, published by Calmann-Lévy.
This book is an event that brings together the greatest press cartoonists from all over the African continent who are fighting in their respective countries for the fundamental right of press freedom. Plantu and Cartooning for Peace have brought together a selection of their most striking cartoons, which together constitute a unique collection. Some twenty cartoonists, including Zapiro (South Africa), Gado (Kenya), Glez (Burkina Faso), Dilem (Algeria), Alaa Satir (Sudan), Sherif Arafa (Egypt), Zohoré (Ivory Coast) and Willis from Tunis (Tunisia) represent some twenty countries. Some of them began their work in often difficult conditions. Others have come to the world. What they all have in common is that they have understood that drawing is the ideal weapon for writing about their society and criticising its ills, despite the intimidation and, in some cases, imprisonment to which they are subjected.
