Cartoon Bombing

Following the arrest of Dutch cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot last week, it has become publicised that the Dutch Secret Service apparently has a division dedicated to checking all cartoons being published in the country for potentially offensive content. Whatever you may think of Nekschot’s racist junk, that should be cause for concern. And indeed, Dutch cartoonist Peter Nieuwendijk, founder and present Secretary General of the Federation of Cartoonists Organizations (FECO) is organising a campaign, supported by the Dutch Cartoons Association, the Dutch Foundation Pers and Prent (Press & Print), and Cartoonists Rights Network International, to inundate — “bomb” — the Dutch Ministry of Justice in cartoons. More information on how to participate here.
