Организации карикатуристов Англии и Франции покинули FECO

Сообщение Andrey Feldshteyn » Пн апр 10, 2023 12:34 pm

Новость несколько давняя, аж 2017-го года. Вот, что я прочитал на сайте Cartoon Movement:
Профессиональная организация карикатуристов Великобритании решила вслед за организацией карикатуристов Франции
покинуть FECO. Выход из FECO связывается с сотрудничеством FECO с Иранским Домом Карикатуры, организатором конкурсов,
отрицающих Холокост.

Кто-нибудь знает что-нибудь, связанное с этой историей?

Текст с сайта Cartoon Movement:

In 2015, we reported on FECO, the Federation of Cartoonists Organisations, and the questionable cooperation of FECO with the Iran House of Cartoon, one of the organizers of the infamous Holocaust Cartoon Competition.

In December 2016, FECO France decided to leave FECO and to change its name to France-Cartoons. Here is an excerpt from their statement, which can be read in full here.

You have all followed, with great interest or not, the gloomy affair of the holocaust contest organised by the Tehran House of Cartoons and the inappropriate presence of the international Feco president among the competitors. That second “Holocaust Contest” was directly targeting the green Charlie cover “All has been forgiven” and the sorrowful gatherings after the Charlie slaughter.

We asked for explanations from the Feco international board and succeeded in having the president resign. Elections were duly set up. It seems that the candidates list had neither been submitted to the Feco-France vote nor to the Feco-Israel one nor to the Feco-España one and perhaps some more. Those elections were rather odd since the former resigning president happened to become a vice president without having ever been a candidate.
After a unanimous consent at the General Assembly, we agreed we had to leave the Feco International.

Last week, the Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation (PCO) in the United Kingdom decided to leave FECO:

After a great deal of thought by the PCO Committee and through consulting our members, PCO [UK] has decided to leave FECO forthwith.

This is a very sad decision, but has been brought about by FECO’s involvement with a Holocaust themed cartoon contest offered by the Iran House of Cartoon, known Holocaust deniers.

PCO cannot allow itself to be associated in any way with holocaust denial.

Perhaps, looking into the future, when FECO reorganises so that it is no longer associated in any way with holocaust denial PCO might apply to re-join. In the meantime PCO intends to maintain good relations with individual cartoonists’ organisations such as France-Cartoon, formerly FECO France. But as of now we do not consider ourselves a member of FECO.

To our knowledge, FECO has not yet publicly responded.

С подачи Василия проследил еще одну ссылку. Выяснилось, что Bernard Bouton ушел с поста генерального секретаря FECO аж в 2015-м году. Правда, остался Вице-Президентом.
Посмотрел их сайт: выглядит несколько захиревшим. Вся информация - в электронном журнале FECONEWS. Англии и Франции действительно нет в составе. Зато появился американец Christopher Weyant... 8)

Daryl Cagle mentioned new developments on his Facebook page. He states Bernard Bouton, secretary-general of FECO (and also a member of the Cartoon Movement community) has resigned from FECO. In recent days, Bouton has been criticized for participating in the Holocaust Competition. According to Cagle, ‘the French cartoonists, the largest part of FECO, are calling for new elections to replace the FECO board and to disassociate FECO from Iran's infamous ‘House of Cartoons’. We will continue to follow the story, and will report any new developments.
