Palestinian Che Guevara in the Toronto Star

Mafaz Al-Suwaidan, in a special article for the Toronto Star regarding the history of the kaffiyeh, reproduced my Palestinian Che cartoon. Thank you, Ms. Al-Suwaidan, for your kindness.


"In 2002, Brazilian political cartoonist Carlos Latuff introduced a drawing of Che Guevara with a kaffiyeh wrapped around his head.

Probably because it clearly calls for revolution in Palestine, and a call like that is one that neither H&M nor Urban Outfitters et al would like to include in their spring collection."
