There’s a new cartoon up at Cartoon Movement, this one by Ted Rall exploring this summer’s student protests in Quebec over tuition hikes, a well-organized protest despite a recent bill outlawing large protests.
“A stone’s throw from the U.S. is one of the biggest unreported stories around, a militant protest movement that has allied college students, the unemployed, labor, anarchists, advocates of Quebecois independence and others disenchanted with the provincial government in particular and capitalism in general,” said Rall in a statement. “I appreciate the chance that Cartoon Movement gives me and other cartoonists to raise awareness of news that most outlets refuse to touch.”
As usual Cartoon Movement continues to offer some of the most cogent and timely cartooning on the web.
