Cartoonist threatened in Twitter message
The cartoon was making reference to an underwater cable which will join Venezuela with Cuba and Jamaica in an effort to improve telecommunications between those countries. The drawing showed a cable with the text, "Cable to Cuba" and next to it, the same cable in the shape of a noose which read: "Cable to Venezuela".
Among the threatening messages sent from Ron's account (@LinaNRonUPV) the following stands out: "We are going to use that rope on you for being apátrida (unpatriotic), for being pitiyanqui (a yankee wannabe) and for being disloyal to Venezuela".
Suprani reported the incident to the Venezuelan Journalists Association.
IPYS-Venezuela condemns these threats which are an attempt to silence Suprani and the opinions she expresses daily in her cartoons.
