Car­toon cen­sor­ship.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

SYRIZA MEP Ste­lios Kouloglou has filed a com­plaint with Euro­pean Par­lia­ment Pres­i­dent An­to­nio Ta­jani claim­ing that sev­eral sketches by Greek car­toon­ists will not be al­lowed to go on dis­play in an ex­hi­bi­tion that is be­ing or­ga­nized by the Greek politi­cian and French MEP Pa­trick Le Hyaric, cel­e­brat­ing 60 years of the Euro­pean Union. Ac­cord­ing to Kouloglou, Greek car­toon­ists were cen­sored, as 12 out of 28 their sketches were re­jected be­cause they al­legedly vi­o­lated Euro­pean Union rules that pro­hibit Naz­ifriendly or other of­fen­sive ma­te­rial ap­pear­ing in EU ex­hi­bi­tions. Among the cen­sored car­toons was one by Kathimerini car­toon­ist Ilias Makris.
