Exhibit Features Foreign Cartoons Criticizing U.S. Policies

By: E&P Staff An exhibit called "Why Do They STILL Hate U.S.?" will open April 21 at the Cartoon Art Museum of San Francisco.

The show -- which runs until Sept. 23 -- features 70-plus cartoons that "provide an outsiders' perspective on American politics and culture, displaying an overall discontent with the United States and its impact on the world at large." More than 35 cartoonists are represented from Honduras, Jordan, Singapore, Switzerland and other countries.

Among their topics are the Iraq War, the Guantanamo prison, torture, America's appetite for oil, immigration, the Bush administration's anti-environmental policies, and political scandals.

Cartoonists featured in the exhibit are syndicated by Cagle Cartoons and the Cartoonists & Writers Syndicate. CWS content is marketed by the New York Times Syndicate.
