Indonesian Cartoonists Respond to Charlie Hebdo Killings

Yeksa Sarkeh Chandra, Secretary General of the Association of Indonesian Cartoonists, was quoted by the Antara news agency as saying that the organisation:

‘Strongly condemn this inhumane action… setting aside from ideology and doctrines adhered to by these cartoonist, we as Indonesian cartoonists express our condolences concerning these events.’

However the most eloquent response I have seen coming out of Indonesia is the cartoon tweeted by Indonesian cartoonist Toni Malakian, which I repost here. This adds to a worldwide response by cartoonists.



*Update May 2017, I have updated this post by linking to Toni Malakian’s cartoon from January 2016 commemorating one year since the killings.
