Ebalé Receives Courage in Cartooning Award
European Press Prize Now Open to Cartoonists

Call to Action: Free Ramón Esono Ebalé


Cartoon Movement, EG Justice and Cartoonists Rights Network International along with a coalition of international organizations invite cartoonists and artists from around the world to support the #FreeNseRamon campaign. 

Cartoonist Ramón Esono Ebalé was arrested on September 16 in Equatorial Guinea and was extensively interrogated in front of witnesses about his provocative drawings of members of the government. He is being held on trumped up  charges of counterfeiting and money laundering, but has yet to be formally charged. He has unjustly spent over 50 days in prison without a clear prospect for release. His imprisonment appears to be a deliberate attempt to curtail his freedom to express himself through his art and writings.  View Ramon's work at www.jamonyqueso.co.

Please note there is a Spanish language initiative running in cooperation with  our campaign at www.freenseramon.com.

Show your support for Ramon's release by sharing your illustration with the following hashtag: #FreeNseRamon

Please keep in mind the campaign exclusively aims to get Ramon released from prison because he is innocent.   

Our goal is to bring attention to his plight. We are not requesting artwork that is critical of government officials in Equatorial Guinea as we do not want to do anything to jeopardize his case.

Select art will be displayed on the EG Justice #FreeNseRamon website.

The campaign will run from now until Ramon's release from prison.

More details about his arrest here.

This call to action is also available in French, Spanish and Portuguese.
