Zunar awarded “2016 Cartooning For Peace Award”

I am honored to be one of the winner of  2016 Cartooning For Peace Award”. The ceremoney was held at the Palais Eynard in Geneva in the presence of the Honorary President of the Swiss Foundation Cartooning for Peace, the former Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr Kofi Annan and Municipal Councillor for the City of Geneva Mr Guillaume Barazzone.

The other winner is Kenyan cartoonist, Gado. Work of both cartoonists are exhibited at the Lac Leman in Geneva.

ZUNAR’s STATEMENT

“2016 International Editorial Cartoons Prize” gives new strength for me to continue the fight against the 60-year old corrupt and repressive Malaysian regime. Human rights and freedom of expression in Malaysia are in dire straits. Sedition Act and other draconian laws are used widely to silence critics. All institutions are being used as political tools by the regime in order to maintain power.

Talent is not a gift, but a responsibility. It is a duty for me as a cartoonist to use the art as a weapon to fight unjust rulers. Fear and intimidation are the potent tools being used by the regime to scare the people. I believe, strokes of art can lead the people to cross the line of fear.

I also strongly believe that, when facing with moral crisis, there is no room to grumble in silence. We have to stand up and cry our voice out loud and clear. Neutrality is escapism for those who live in comfort zone. How Can I be Neutral, Even My Pen Has a Stand!

Finally, I would like to remind the regime that repression begets rebellion: you can ban my cartoons, you can ban my books, but you cannot ban my mind. I will continue to fight through cartoons. I will keep fighting until the last drop of my ink.

Zunar terima anugerah “2016 International Editorial Cartoons Prize”

Saya berasa bartuah dipilih sebagai salah seorang pemenang “International Editorial Cartoons Prize” bagi tahun 2016. Majlis penyampaian diadakan di Palais Eynard di Geneva dengan kehadiran Presiden Terhormat Swiss Foundation Cartooning for Peace yang juga bekas Setiausaha Agung Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu Kofi Annan dan juga Datuk Bandar Geneva, Guillaume Barazzone.

Kartunis dari Kenya, Gado juga memenangi anugerah yang sama untuk tahun ini. Disamping itu, kedua-dua kartunis juga diberi peluang untuk mempamerkan karya kartun mereka di tepi tasik Lac Leman in Geneva.

ZUNAR’s STATEMENT

“2016 International Editorial Cartoons Prize” memberi kekuatan baru kepada saya untuk terus menggugah kerajaan zalim Malaysia yang telah berusia 60 tahun. Hak asasi manusia dan kebebasan bersuara di Malaysia kini berada dalam keadaan yang sangat parah. Akta Hasutan dan akta-akta lapuk lainnya diguna oleh pemerintah untuk melenyapkan suara pengiritik. Semua institusi kerajaan diguna sebagai perkakas oleh pemerintah untuk terus berkuasa.

Bakat bukanlah keistimewaan, tetapi adalah tanggung jawab. Menjadi tanggungjawab saya sebagai kartunis untuk menggunakan seni sebagai senjata bagi menentang pemerintah zalim. Senjata ampuh bagi mana-mana rejim di dunia ialah dengan menanamkan ketakutan dan intimidasi untuk menakutkan rakyat. Lakaran seni dapat memimpin rakyat untuk merentasi garisan ketakutan.

Apabila kita berhadapan dengan krisis moral, tiada ruang untuk merungut dalam diam. Kita mesti bangun dan melaungkan suara dengan kuat dan jelas. Bersikap neutral adalah adalah satu bentuk pelarian dari kenyataan bagi mereka yang hidup dalam zon yang selesa. Bagaimana saya boleh bersikap neutral, sedangkan pen saya juga punya stand. Akhirnya, saya ingin mengingatkan kepada kerajaan Malaysia bahawa semakin kuat tekanan, semkain kuat pula penentangan: Anda boleh mengharamkan kartun saya, anda boleh mengharamkan buku saya, tetapi anda tidak boleh mengharamkan fikiran saya. Saya akan terus berjuang melali kartun. Saya akan terus berlawan sehingga ke titisan dakwat terakhir.
