Another #F1 cartoon used in a protest, Sehla, #Bahrain

The artwork I made in January 12, calling to boycott to the Formula One in Bahrain, was used in another prostest.

(Associated Press) Bahraini anti-government protesters carry a poster calling for a boycott of next weekend’s Formula OneBahrain Grand Prix during a march Sunday, April 15, 2012, in Sehla, Bahrain, near the capital of Manama. The Arabic reads, “formula in Bahrain is crushing the bodies of the people.” Thousands of protesters, many waving national flags, called for the fall of the Bahraini regime and freedom for political prisoners.

ATENÇÃO! No Twitter, regime do #Bahrain reage as minhas charges!

De acordo com o órgão oficial de informação do governo do Bahrain (IAA), o regime do rei Hamad estaria preocupado com a “integridade jornalística” de minhas charges. Nas mensagens divulgadas no Twitter, o órgão me acusa de ter “passado dos limites” da liberdade de expressão. É curioso que uma instituição do governo do Bahrain use palavras como “integridade” e “liberdade de expressão”. Relatório da Anistia Internacional de 13 de abril de 2012, essa sim, uma organização íntegra, dá conta de que as autoridades do Bahrain “vem cometendo violações de direitos humanos abertamente e impunemente, com uso excessivo de força contra manifestantes, tortura generalizada, tratamento desumano, julgamentos injustos e execuções extrajudiciais.”

ATTENTION! King Hamad’s regime reacts about my cartoons on #Bahrain

According to a Twitter account supposedly held by the Information Affairs Authority (IAA) of Bahrain, of the regime of King Hamad, they are concerned about the “journalistic integrity” displayed in my cartoons. In the messages, IAA states that my drawings “tip over the limits” of what is considered freedom of speech. It’s curious that a government institution of Bahrain uses words like “integrity” and “freedom of speech”, which are values definitely not applied by Hamad’s regime.

According to a report by Amnesty International, an organization accorded a great deal of integrity, Bahraini authorities “had committed gross human rights violations with impunity, including the excessive use of force against protesters, widespread torture and other ill-treatment of protesters, unfair trials and unlawful killings.

Cartoon I made for Abdulhadi al-Khawaja used in a demo outside UK embassy in #Bahrain

Cartoon I made for Bahraini activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja was used by protesters yesterday.

(Associated Press) Anti-government protesters approach riot police holding pictures of a jailed opposition human rights activist Saturday, April 14, 2012, outside the British Embassy in Manama, Bahrain. Dozens gathered in support of Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, who has been on a prison hunger strike for more than two months. Police, who blocked surrounding roads, dispersed the demonstrators with sound grenades. The Arabic on the banner worn by the woman at center reads: “freedom or martyrdom.”
