Freedom of expression

Thank you for coming in such large numbers to our New Year’s Get-Together event, co-organized with La villa numeris at the Hôtel de l’Industrie, to admire the inspiring press cartoons of the Cartooning for Peace association, an international network of cartoonists.

We had the opportunity to listen to an introductory speech by David Lacombled, president of the think tank La villa numeris, who reminded us of the confusion, today, between freedom of expression and expression of freedom. Thaima Samman then spoke about how necessary it is to highlight the challenges of freedom of expression and try to find answers to them, as well as the contribution of technology and its framework. Finally, Kak, President of Cartooning for Peace and a press cartoonist, outlined the fundamentals of freedom of expression and the endangerment of press cartoonists, before presenting the selection of works on display.


“Press cartoonists are the barometers of our democracy.”

– Kak, President of Cartooning for Peace


We look forward to continuing our work to reaffirm freedom of expression in 2024. Thank you to the Hôtel de l’Industrie for this wonderful organization.
