Behind the Scene
  after the 3rd Courage world Cartoon Contest


The   "COURAGE" has been sailing forward in a political thunder storm, and is striking some  tips of the iceburgs, i.e. :

@    The Expo. site in the US has not been updated for 1+ year ( pro. hackers or cat's paws  block my  uploading files).   
@    FECONEWS (Official periodicals of Federation European Cartoonists Organisations) have lost by post  for  about 2 years ..... (at least one copy was returned to Europe)
      Continuous coincidents? Taiwan government ?   or foreigh country's invasion?
      foreigh country's interception ?

One thing for sure, it's political ! !

@    Communications are under strict monitors
All entry cartoons from 70+ countries possibly are "selected" cartoons, as far as I know, at least some works 're disappeared.

This is more trickish than that 2 European cartoonists're arrested by the government after their cartoons' being displayed recently .

Masked vicious powers are afraid of  admitting what they've done in secret, in fact being  more cowardly than some international terrorists.

Instead of telling different  jokes,  this international cartoon exhibition  is organized for (original intension since 1998) improving politics, which is dangerous but more meaningful and positive.

Immediately after this site was updated on 8/8/2001, this computer 's attcked by professionals (world most-selling internet security system doesn't work for this).

This action trenches on  Freedom of Expression .

According to an item of news from source in The Straits Times,
In this July, to report Courage World Cartoon Contest, they referred to a certain embassy for information, and left a certain country president's pieces of news behind this.   No wonder,  Hong Kong University's a poll in this year  ranked Singapore's mass media toppest (1st/2nd) among Asian ones.
