Zapiro, South African political cartoonist, sent us some of his illustrations a few days before the G8 Summit in Germany to post to our blog and our website. Now that things have calmed a bit in the office and we're more focused on the passage of the Jubilee Act, we thought it fitting to show you some of the cartoons he sent us. When you finish laughing and thinking, you can do something to stop the cycle of debt and oppression many countries in the Global South face by sending an e-mail to your Member of Congress about the Jubilee Act HR2634.
In the coming months, we'll post cartoons online from Zapiro and Gado.
Wednesday's blog post will come from Nate and I at the US Social Forum, the first one of its kind ever in the US. For its first year, the forum will be in Atlanta, GA, my hometown!
If you're going to the forum, we'll post a schedule of the events Jubilee USA is involved in faciliating and co-sponsoring soon. Until then, enjoy more of Zapiro's illustrations after the jump.
