Power of the Pen

Rayma Suprani lost her job at El Universal in Venezuela after drawing an image  of Hugo Chavez’s signature flat lining, to symbolize the state of health care in her nation.



She addressed the Oslo Freedom Forum this Spring on the importance of political cartooning in the face of oppression.  You’re going to want to watch this if just to enjoy all the wonderful political cartoons.


Note: Her remarks are in Spanish, you can see English subtitles by going to the Gear sign on the lower menu bar and selecting them.

  1. So you don’t care about for instance the first democratic election in Myanmar (Burma) in many years and a Nobel Peace prize winner leading at least in an advisory role as the representative for her district the new government?
    You don’t care that Obama favours Venezuelan oil instead of Canadian oil?
