"Niks aan de hand" (Nothing wrong) by Stefan Verwey

Some CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera newtitles of last week:
"Unrest in the Middle East and North Africa."
"Bahrein protesters press demands"
"Liberate us!"
"Appeal to spare Libyan civilians"

Looking for cartoons that could illustrate restriction of freedom, I want to refer to some cartoons drawn by the Dutch cartoonist Stefan Verwey (born 1946) in his book "Niks aan de hand" ("nothing wrong"), published in 1978 (!!!).

The cartoons below are more than 30 years old, but still could by published on tomorrow's frontpage of any newspaper in the world. That's the power of good cartoons!
