Leave us in peace!
This could be the cartoonists from all over the world cry. They are too often harassed by fundamentalists and intolerance of all kinds, rejected by politicians who only appreciate cartoons when they attack the opposing party and supervised too strictly by editors.
This Cartooning for Peace exhibition in The Hague presents international cartoonists points of view on human rights abuses and freedom of expression. They fully sketch the censorship, the Arab world revolutions, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and above all the hope for peace! Cartoons encourage visitors to resist again gloom with smile, laugh or provocation.
Cartooning for Peace thanks the Alliance Française in the Netherlands and the Carnegie Foundation of the Peace Palace for this invitation on the occasion of their 2013 anniversaries : the 125th anniversary of the Alliance Française in the Netherlands and the centenary of the Peace Palace inauguration.
