Aseem Trivedi (IND)

Aseem Trivedi is an cartoonist who uses his art as a political weapon mainly for the campaign “Cartoons Against Corruption” which he started in 2011. His popular website was shut down by the government when he supported the hunger strike of Anna Hazare with his drawings. Cases of treason and national insult were filed against him. The movement “Save your Voice”, supported by leading activists and artists, demands the restoration of his website and to change the internet censorship laws of India.
