Cartooning for Peace deplores the disappearance of the press cartoon in the NY Times

The NY Times ends the publication of political cartoons in its international pages, beginning July 1st, including the disappearance of Chappatte’s press cartoons after many years of collaboration with the American newspaper.

The press cartoon of Antonio (Portugal) constitutes the triggering event.

Cartooning for Peace denounces this unfortunate decision for press freedom and regrets the fears that are seizing some redactions.

As Patrick Chappatte, vice-President of The Cartooning for Peace Foundation in Geneva, well said : “Political cartoons were born with democracy. And they are challenged when freedom is.“ Read Patrick Chappatte’s declaration.

Let’s keep in mind that numerous press cartoonists from all over the world signed the Addis-Ababa Declaration for the Recognition of Cartooning as a Fundamental Human Right.
