Morrer de amor, ou case Por SIRO LOPEZ (VOZ DE GALICIA)


Cando me ten nos seus brazos e me fala quediño, vexo a vida en rosa», cantou Édith Piaf, en 1946, e «La vie en rose» converteuse nun himno ao amor en todo o mundo, quizais porque a inmensa maioría dos mortais vimos, ou cremos ver, algunha vez a vida en rosa. Os humoristas facemos mofa do amor, aparentando unha sabedoría que non temos; pero é leria, alarde de cinismo e de enxeño para facer rir. Unha das protagonistas da película«Delitos e faltas», de Woody Allen, reflexiona: «O do meu ex foi amor a primeira vista. Debinlle de botar outra ollada». Está moi ben, ten graza; pero os máis dos filósofos e estudosos do amor coinciden en que o gran amor é o do frechazo, e eu son tamén desa opinión por propia, marabillosa e inesquecible experiencia.
Chamábase Mariconchi e era a nena máis linda que vira nos meus dez anos de vida. De pel branca como a Brancaneves do conto, ollos grandes e inquedos, boca debuxadiña e fresca, falaba e ría sempre. Foi o meu primeiro grande amor. Eu xa tivera outras experiencias amorosas; xa namorara de Liz Taylor, Yvonne de Carlo, Leslie Caron, Carmen Sevilla…, pero o de Mariconchi era outra cousa.
Todo empezou a tarde do 31 de agosto do 1953, día en que Ferrol celebra a festa de San Ramón en honra do marqués de Amboaxe. No Cantón había un remuíño de xente, pero só tiven ollos para ela e ela olloume tamén, sorriume e non deixou de mirarme ata que falamos. Foi un amor a primeira vista, un frechazo que nos fendeu o corazón pola metade; e aquela noite, nos fogos de Amboaxe, eu sabía que as tracas, as bengalas e o castelo de luces que estoupaban no ceo, eran para nós.
O idilio proseguiu felizmente nos próximos días, co meu amigo Arturito e a súa amiga Tonucha de «carabinas», e se eu coñecese o texto de Romeo e Xulieta avalaría a Shakespeare cando afirma que os namorados poden camiñar sobre teas de araña, baixo a caloriña do verán. Porque eu sentía o amor dentro de min como unha acumulación de gases baixo o diafragma, que me facían levitar; e se pensaba nela no xantar, perdía o apetito; e de noite non durmía sen soñar, esperto, mil aventuras románticas con ela e eu de protagonistas. Todo, todo ao redor de min era de cor rosa.
Unha tarde veu triste e explicoume que non podiamos seguir porque o irmán pequeno -un alevín de canalla, quen sabe que sería del!- chivárase ao pai, que lle ordeara cortar de contado a nosa relación, ou non a deixaría saír de casa. Non esquecín as súas palabras de despedida:
-¡Lo siento muchísimo, porque me gustas tanto…! Tonucha e Arturito foron testemuñas daquel momento dramático.
Arturito e eu volvemos a Esteiro, o noso barrio. Sentíame o ser máis desgraciado do mundo e nin andar podía coa dor terrible que me abranguía o peito. Pero ao chegarmos a La Ibense Arturito propúxome paparmos uns xeados, e pedín un de turrón. Coa primeira lambetada a anguria mermou algo, e o mesmo coa segunda e as seguintes. O que quedaba do día funo levando como puiden, pero estou certo de que sen o xeado de La Ibense aquel día morrería de amor.

VII BIENAL de HUMOR “LUÍS D’OLIVEIRA GUIMARÃES” – ESPINHAL/PENELA 2020 Portugal





One Organization: Penela City Council / Junta de Freguesia do Espinhal / Oliveira Guimarães House Museum
With the support of Luiz d´Oliveira Guimarães Foundation
A Production: Humorgrafe - Artistic Director: Osvaldo Macedo de Sousa (humorgrafe.oms@gmail.com)

The Biennial where humor needs no color, just a smile, philosophical intelligence and a simple, direct color - black and white and its nuances.

1 - Theme: Laugh With and at Health (Human and systems)
           a) Health is something that worries us daily, and although we say that we are looking good, we rarely complain about it, but about other ailments, such as empty pockets to pay the doctor, IDP (age) social colds … Health is something more complicated than in the times of our grandmothers' little ones. Today it is a game of balances, not just physical, energetic or spiritual, as a field of economic battles in the pharmaceutical universe, of confrontations between said conventional medicines with traditional or alternative medicines, as if life had a healthy and unhealthy alternation. We cannot forget that side of alchemy / magic that has accompanied the evolution of humanity and reflecting the color, diversity, life of each culture and each people. Since the dawn of humanity, man has been looking for ways in nature (physical and chemical) to maintain the healthy balance of being. Shamans, druids, healers, physicists, herbalists, pharmacists, doctors… yes, we live in an era of the global village, but at this moment it is more important to demonstrate the diversity, the identity of each people, each culture that makes humor with the generalist banality of the universe. We would like your drawings to also show a little of your culture, your diversity in health and medicine.
           To speak of health is to speak of man or humanity? Are the symptoms of illness the same or disparate? Can there be a healthy humanity with sick beings or healthy Men in a sick society? Are governments really willing to have a good National Health Service policy or is this counterproductive for pharmaceutical lobbyists, who end up controlling their health to their liking? And what about the sick doctor relationship (which the Order of Doctors asks to be considered an Intangible Heritage of Humanity) that is being submerged by technologies and by the economist dehumanization of medicine?
So many serious issues looking for laughing satires… We all know that laughing is already an alternative drug, a placebo that eradicates multiple diseases of humanity, but to what extent it has therapeutic strength to keep us awake against usurpations, games, unhealthy corruptions of society?
           b) As a subgroup, as part of the portrait-charge / Caricature, we will honor António Arnaut (Penela 18/1/1936 - Coimbra 21/5/2018) the “father” of the National Health Service, created in 1978 when he held the position of Minister of Social Affairs (II Constitutional Government).
2 - Open to the participation of all graphic artists with humor, professionals or amateurs.
3 - Deadline: May 31th, 2020. They should be sent to humorgrafe.oms@gmail.com, humorgrafe@hotmail.com or humorgrafe_oms@yahoo.com (If they do not receive confirmation of receipt, resend SFF).
4 - Each artist can send, via e-mail in digital format (300 dpis A4 size) up to 4 monochrome works (one color with all its shades - 2, 3 or 4 color drawings are not accepted - open to all techniques and styles such as caricature, cartoon, humorous drawing, comic strip, comic strip (story on a single board) ... these should be accompanied with information of name, date of birth, address and e-mail.
5 - The works will be judged by a jury composed of: representatives of the Penela City Council; representative of the Espinhal Parish Council; representative of the Oliveira Guimarães family; by the Artistic Director of the Biennial; one sponsor representative, one local media representative and one to two guest artists, with the following Awards being granted:

3rd Prize of the VII BHLOG 2020 (€ 1,000)

The Jury, at its discretion, may award “Special Awards” (António Oliveira Guimarães, Leonor Oliveira Guimarães, Municipality of Penela, Junta de Freguesia do Espinhal and Humorgrafe), as an honorary title, with the right to a trophy.
6 - The Jury grants the right to make a selection of the best works to exhibit in the available space and catalog edition (which will be sent to all artists with reproduced work).
7 - The Organization will inform all artists by e.mail if they have been selected for the exhibition and catalog, and which artists have been awarded. The works awarded with remuneration are automatically acquired by the Organization.

Cartoonista Vasco Gargalo alvo de ameaças e críticas por cartoon sobre Israel


O cartoonista português Vasco Gargalo disse hoje à agência Lusa ter recebido ameaças de morte, além de acusações de antissemitismo, por causa de um cartoon publicado em novembro, e sublinhou que continuará a lutar pela liberdade de expressão.
"É mais um sinal de que a comunidade judaica não pode ser criticada. Cada vez que isso acontece [é-se] logo acusado de antissemita. É uma perseguição para aniquilar o meu trabalho", lamentou o cartoonista.
Em causa está um cartoon, intitulado "Crematório", que Vasco Gargalo publicou ‘online’, na plataforma Cartoon Movement a 15 de novembro de 2019 e que republicou na semana passada, num comentário ao plano de paz para o Médio-Oriente apresentado pelos Estados Unidos.
O cartoon, que faz uma alusão ao Holocausto, mostra o primeiro-ministro de Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, a empurrar um caixão, coberto com a bandeira palestiniana, para um crematório onde está inscrito "Arbeit Macht Frei" (“O trabalho liberta”), replicando a frase que está na entrada do campo de concentração nazi de Auschwitz.
"É a minha visão sobre este ataque. Quando fiz o cartoon sabia que era forte, que ia tocar na questão das vítimas do Holocausto, mas na verdade não acrescento nada ao que vejo. É uma comparação que fiz do conflito israelo-palestiniano", disse Vasco Gargalo.
O cartoonista fala em ameaças de morte e injúrias, de pessoas da comunidade judaica em Portugal e no estrangeiro, de uma "enorme pressão sobre os media".


O embaixador de Israel em Portugal, Raphael Gamzou, acusou hoje o cartoonista português Vasco Gargalo de ter feito um cartoon "atascado de ódio e banalização" do Holocausto e apelou à revista Sábado para que se desvincule do autor.

Numa carta dirigida hoje à direção da revista Sábado, e enviada à agência Lusa, o embaixador deixa duras críticas ao cartoonista Vasco Gargalo por ter feito um cartoon que compara, simbolicamente, o conflito israelo-palestiniano ao Holocausto.
Referindo o "fedor pestilento dos cartoons antissemitas" de Vasco Gargalo, o diplomata israelita sublinha que, se a obra do cartoonista fosse convertida em texto, seria um "artigo despudoradamente antissemita que banaliza aquela que foi a maior tragédia da História da Humanidade, através da utilização de todos os estereótipos que promovem o ódio aos judeus".
Em causa está um cartoon, intitulado "Crematório", que Vasco Gargalo publicou ‘online’, na plataforma Cartoon Movement a 15 de novembro de 2019, e que republicou na semana passada, num comentário ao plano de paz para o Médio-Oriente apresentado pelos Estados Unidos.
O cartoon mostra o primeiro-ministro de Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, a empurrar um caixão, coberto com a bandeira palestiniana, para um crematório onde está inscrito "Arbeit Macht Frei" (“O trabalho liberta”), replicando a frase que está na entrada do campo de concentração nazi de Auschwitz.

Em defesa do judeu Vasco Gargalo por Nuno Saraiva

Em 2009, muito antes daquele incompreensível massacre, Philippe Val então diretor do jornal satírico CHARLIE HEBDO demitiu o cartunista Siné sobre a acusação de anti-semitismo. SINÉ recusava pedir desculpas a Jean Sarkozy - filho mais velho do presidente francês, por ter escrito uma crónica parodiando a possibilidade, afinal nunca concretizada, do jovem se converter ao judaísmo por casamento e por sucesso social. Naquela altura nem todos eram CHARLIE mas mesmo assim o Siné desempregado contou com muita solidariedade dos seus colegas cartunistas.
Sinto que é meu dever e obrigação DEFENDER aqui o meu colega e amigo Vasco Gargalo, judeu. Judeu como eu e como milhares de portugueses. Nós, os nascidos em Portugal, aqueles que lhe conhecem as suas fundações, sabem que muito antes de sermos CHARLIE somos Judeu e também Bérbere, entre outros povos migrantes que ao longo dos séculos aqui habitaram, procriaram e se fixaram.
Incomodou muita gente o cartune "CREMATÓRIO", obra não encomendada por editor ou jornal e que foi por exclusiva opção do próprio publicada online na plataforma Cartoon Movement.
Organizações internacionais, políticos e diplomatas surgem em uníssono a exigir castigos, pedidos de desculpas, demissões. Em nome da ofensa às vítimas do Holocausto, consideram-se no direito inabalável de condenar cartunes, até os de mau-gosto (Benjamin Netanyahu nunca ficará bem num desenho humorístico).
Os mesmos que nunca se reverão nos judeus livre-pensadores como George Steiner ou Hannah Arendt. STEINER, que faleceu há 3 dias atrás, dizia sobre Israel "ser um triste milagre”, cujo preço a pagar era "o seu nacionalismo militarista", que vai "inevitavelmente - matar e torturar para sobreviver”.
É esta Israel que o Vasco Gargalo, o judeu, desenhou. Não para nos ofender mas para nos alertar.----
Não posso deixar de focar aqui um intimo livre-pensamento (porque é o Livre-Pensamento que aqui defendo). Há um bom punhado de anos visitei, na companhia do meu grande amigo e ilustrador Fernando Martins, o campo de extermínio nazi Natzweiler-Struthof, na Alsácia. Vimos o horror numa câmara de gás. Estivemos junto a um forno crematório semelhante ao deste cartune. A lágrimas e desconforto que trago dessas memórias não me deixam retratar aquele cenário. Não consigo. É mais forte do que eu.
E sim: mais forte que o HUMOR.
Mas isso sou eu - o judeu - e o meu Livre-pensamento magoado.
Nuno Saraiva
