CRNI monitors the loss of cartoonists from media outlets globally

From Index on Censorship.

Cartoonists around the world continue to be subjected to censorship, imprisonment, violence, threats, harassment and, in the worst cases, even death.

Although a small organisation, Cartoonists Rights Network International has had a big impact on challenging threats and abuses against editorial cartoonists worldwide.

Since winning the 2019 Index on Censorship Freedom of Expression Award for Campaigning in April, CRNI has, among other things, been monitoring the situation with Badiucao, a Chinese dissident cartoonist living in exile in Australia who this year revealed his identity after years of anonymity, Terry Anderson, deputy executive director of CRNI, tells Index.

The Index award has so far helped the organisation raise its profile, as well as putting them in contact with allies.
