Friend of Palestine By Carlos Latuff Rio de Janeiro Brazil
In May of 2013 British cosmologist
Stephen Hawking pulled outof an Israeli
conference, joining an academic
boycott of Israel to protest against
its occupation of Palestinian lands.
Carlos Latuff, a cartoonist, artist and activist based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Latuff has spent the last 15 plus years crafting a style that can best
be described as “populist cartooning.” He has touched on issues like
Apartheid in South Africa, the plight of Native Americans in the US and
the oppression of Tibetans in China.
But perhaps his
most controversial series to date is “We are all Palestinians,” in
which he compares the actions taken by the Israeli government towards
Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip directly to the Nazi’s
treatment of Jews. Contact Mr. Latuff and BC.
