Cartoonist Musa Kart, along with 13 other journalists from the Cumhuriyet newspaper, were found guilty this week in their politically-motivated show trial in Turkey. Kart was sentenced to 3+ years for drawing cartoons, while fellow journalists got up up to 8 years. The verdict can be appealed.
Numerous human rights organizations immediately condemned the proceedings.
The Cartoonists Rights Network has joined with other concerned parties to fight this crackdown on free speech. You can follow their updates on https://twitter.com/CRNetInt and http://cartoonistsrights.org/
