Missed It: Ali Ferzat Joins Coalition Of Artists On Syrian Statement
Ethan Heitner caught this English translation of a letter that was published in Le Monde from a coalition of Syrian artists, including the cartoonist Ali Ferzat. The fact that a picture of Ferzat after his beating at the hands of pro-government thugs adorns the top of that letter in its reprinting gives an idea as to how prominently the Sakharov Prize winner is featured in the promulgation of that statement. His is one of the primary signatures. It's a powerful statement, even translated.
