100 drawings for human rights - Cent dessins pour les droits de l'homme

Nothing is more important than human rights and freedom of speech. I found this book some days ago at the Braderie de Lille. It wat published in 1987 by Le cherche midi éditeur. 27 years later we have to defend this rights more than ever. 

You may have heard of the documentary "Caricaturistes - Fantassins de la démocratie": cartoonists are the infantryman of democracy. Learn more about it on the YouTube channel  or the Facebook page. In the documentary, the French cartoonist Plantus says"The first language is the image".  He's damned right!
