Political cartoons – also known as ‘editorial cartoons’ – can be very powerful, for good or bad causes.
This one is a stand-out for me. I came across it on facebook via a couple of pro-Syrian revolution groups.
I know that the Syrian refugee crisis will not be solved until the regime is overthrown and some kind of orderly democratic process developed with appropriate international support, but the cartoon draws attention to the hypocrisy of those elsewhere who support immigration restriction.
Had the bloke who rescued the child not been so courageous, he might have ended up deported one day – yet he is still the same human being.
