Cartoonist rights

From Standing Room Only, 2:48 pm on 17 December 2017

The 2015 attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo killed 12 people, injured 11 others and sparked demonstrations across Europe in support of free speech.

But, says cartoonist rights advocate Terry Anderson, the Hebdo attacks were not at all typical of the kind of threat cartoonists and satirists often live under.

Anderson is in Wellington on behalf of Cartoonists Rights Network International and he says abuse by the state is far more common than terror attacks.
