The times of "crisis" are not democratic.
Inequality increases, even if solidarity is not decreasing.
Only humor can bring order to the world!
Therein is the reason for the proposed theme for the PortoCartoon 2012: The rich, the poor, the protester.
It is hoped a Tsunan of indignation?
Are we looking for new kinds of democracy?
We shall see.
But the clues are released to the excellence of the universal humour.
These are challenges for the cartoonists pencils.
The jury chaired by George Wolinski will choose the best works for PortoCartoon 2012! The opportunity reinforces our wishes of a Happy New Year!
Come then storms of humour!
Be indignant dignifying the art!
Luís Humberto Marcos, Director PortoCartoon
