Ali Dilem Speaks at AAEC Conference

The Algerian political cartoonist Ali Dilem is attending the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists annual meeting near Denver, according to this local media article. The cartoonist has been arrested several times in his home country for his work, and was sentenced to jail time as recently as a year ago. The article also covers some of the Danish Cartoons Controversy talk going on at the conference. The AAEC seems to do a good job bringing in outside opinion-holders on certain issues, and seems to have done so in this case, although the rest of the description of what was said doesn't really inspire me one way or the other.

Another report on the general debate about religion at the conference can be found at Editor & Publisher.
