Have you ever wondered what a child feels when her parents are incarcerated?
What goes through her mind when she sees them behind a blurred glass? She can barely hear them.
She is crunched into a dark, dungeon-like cubicle.
After a few minutes, and without much warning a metal sheath comes down.
She is cut off, clinging to the memories and the sounds that soothed her before,
when her parents used to sing to her..
and held her.
Nasrin Sotoudeh’s children, Ahmad Zeidabadi’s children, so many others who have remained nameless not just in Iran but all around the world deserve to be known, helped and their parents freed.
This cartoon was and is inspired by all the children who had to experience this and their parents and the request of a friend who is participating at an event in Netherlands to raise awareness about this issue,
Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 17th of November 2011, Maastricht – the Netherlands. More information is to follow about this event.
