Cartoons Highlight Human Rights Abuses in Iran
December 12, 2013
In May of this year we reviewed Sketches of Iran, a compilation of cartoons by seven Iranian artists, coupled to columns and commentary by Iranian writers, activists and family of activists in prison or dead. The book was published by The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
The Campaign also publishes a weekly cartoon on human rights in Iran and beyond. The cartoons are drawn by Touka Neyestani, a well-known Iranian political cartoonist. The cartoons are excellent, and a lot of are accompanied to explanations of issues specific to Iran, giving insight into ongoing human rights abuses.
There are 69 cartoons published to date: in the slideshow below, we have collected some of our favorites. To see all the cartoons, be sure to head over to the website of the Campaign.
