The Cartoonists Rights Network International has posted an online petition supporting the freedom of expression of cartoonists (and others). The petition was originally conceived after threats were made against the creators of South Park after the show satirized Muhammad. Signed by Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonists, it has now become a more generalized statement of support for Freedom of Expression. It’s also now available for everyone to sign, cartoonists and the general public alike.
If you’d like to show your support for your freedom of expression, visit the petition website.
