In a video interview CRNI Executive Director Dr Robert Russell talks with Iranian cartoonist Nik Kowsar about the guilty verdict recently issued to him in absentia.
Kowsar is a member of our board of directors and a past recipient of our Courage in Editorial Cartooning Award. He talks about his reaction to the proclamation of the Islamic Revolutionary Court, how it relates to the strife that forced him to leave his home several years ago and the way his experiences have been brought to bear in his subsequent work with our organization, supporting cartoonists who find themselves in similarly dire straits.
Dr Russell reminds viewers that CRNI depends upon reporting of threat to cartoonists via our international network as well as those who follow cartoonists’ work. Use the links below to assist in that effort.
