One thought on ““Exile” International cartoon expo, Paris, 3rd May 2011

  1. Hi Kianoush,
    Kristina Stockwood at IFEX passed on your message. I am a little unclear about what kind of cartoons you are looking for. Should we be asking for press freedom related cartoons, or cartoons from cartoonists in exile, cartoon that have been censored, etc? To publicise it in the IFEX Communiqué and on our website, we need to have a strong freedom of expression link.
    Please let me know as soon as possible as we go to press later today!
    PS – I tried emailing you but IFEX doesn't like your gmail account!
