#Uruguay human rights judge Mariana Mota holding my toon about her transfer to a civil court

La Diaria Uruguay 18 Feb 2013

La Diaria – El juramento de la jueza Mariana Mota como nueva magistrada del tribunal en lo civil no aplacó los ánimos de nadie y la polémica continúa. La manifestación del viernes 15 en respaldo a Mota frente a la Suprema Corte de Justicia (SCJ) terminó con una orden de desalojo. Al presidente José Mujica le pareció “feo” el episodio, pero no se expidió sobre el traslado de Mota, mientras que Lucía Topolansky planteó que “el mundo no se acaba por el traslado de un juez”. Además, dirigentes del Frente Amplio y la oposición cruzaron acusaciones respecto de la constitucionalidad de convocar a la SCJ al Parlamento para que explique los motivos de su polémica decisión: http://ladiaria.com.uy/articulo/2013/2/sigue-movida/

(Getty Images) A Bahraini Shiite Muslim man wears a t-shirt that reads (Human Rights Are Not Allowed in Bahrain) during a protest in solidarity with jailed dissident Abdel Hadi Khawaja and prominent rights activist Nabeel Rajab, in Bilad Al-Qadeem, a suburb of Manama, on May 17, 2012. Khawaja, on hunger strike for more than three months, is well but still continues his fast to protest a life sentence, his lawyer said.

What could be more precious? Children from Palestinian prisoners wearing t-shirts with my cartoon

Yesterday, in the Palestinian city of al-Bireh, a group of children of Palestinian prisoners visited several diplomatic missions in order to expose the difficult situation of their parents in Israeli jails. The children are wearing t-shirts with one of my Palestine cartoons. Such a great honour for me!
