Cartoonists are vulnerable worldwide, CPJ report finds

CPJ releases global assessment of threats faced by cartoonists

New York, May 19, 2015--The attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January 2015 shed light on the grave dangers confronting those who draw satirical and political cartoons. But threats against cartoonists are a global phenomenon and are as diverse as the content of the cartoons themselves, according to a report released today by the Committee to Protect Journalists. In one case examined in the report, political cartoonist Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque, known as "Zunar," faces more than 40 years in prison if found guilty of sedition during a trial that is due to begin in Malaysia on May 20.

Fixer les limites : les caricaturistes menacés

Le 7 janvier, deux hommes armés ont fait irruption dans les bureaux du magazine satirique Charlie Hebdo, tuant huit journalistes et mettant en évidence les risques auxquels sont confrontés les caricaturistes. Mais avec la capacité de leur travail de transcender les frontières et les langues, et de simplifier les situations politiques complexes, les menaces dont font l'objet les caricaturistes à travers le monde—qui sont emprisonnés, forcés à se cacher, menacés de poursuites ou assassinés—dépassent largement l'extrémisme islamique. Un rapport spécial de Shawn W. Crispin pour le Comité pour la protection des journalistes.

Traçando Limites : cartunistas sob ameaça

Em 7 de janeiro, dois homens armados invadiram a sede da revista satírica francesa Charlie Hebdo, matando oito jornalistas e colocando em evidência os riscos que correm os cartunistas. Mas como seu trabalho transcende fronteiras e idiomas, e para simplificar situações políticas complexas, as ameaças sofridas por cartunistas pelo mundo, encarcerados, obrigados a se esconderem, ameaçados com processos jurídicos ou mortos, ultrapassam em muito o extremismo islâmico.

Marcando la línea: Caricaturistas bajo amenaza

El 7 de enero, dos sujetos armados irrumpieron en la sede de la revista satírica francesa Charlie Hebdo, asesinando a ocho periodistas y poniendo así de relieve los riesgos que enfrentan los caricaturistas. Debido a que la labor de los caricaturistas tiene la capacidad de trascender fronteras e idiomas, así como de simplificar situaciones políticas complejas, las amenazas que enfrentan los caricaturistas de todo el mundo --el encarcelamiento, el exilio, los procesos legales o el asesinato-- superan con mucho el extremismo islámico.

Drawing the line: Cartoonists under threat

On January 7, two gunmen burst into the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing eight journalists and bringing into focus the risks cartoonists face. But with the ability of their work to transcend borders and languages, and to simplify complex political situations, the threats faced by cartoonists around the world—who are being imprisoned, forced into hiding, threatened with legal action or killed—far exceed Islamic extremism.
