Zapiro Warns of Shrinking Media Freedom

Zapiro warns of shrinking media freedom following the killing of 12 people in France

Following the killing of 12 people at France's Charlie Hebdo weekly, renowned cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro known as Zapiro warns of shrinking media freedom.

Zapiro, whose drawings are published by the Mail & Guardian, told the paper he hoped the attack in Paris "doesn't have a further chilling effect on satirists, commentators and journalists; any free thinkers in society".

The cartoonist who has been twice sued by President Jacob Zuma, calls out South African politicians for their repeated attacks on the media, urging political leaders, corporate leaders and corporations in general to stand up more than they do against the narrowing of freedom of expression.
