2do Concurso Internacional del Cartón Sinaloa 2013
The Contest is open to all cartoonists from all over the world and beyond.
2. THEME: Migration
The concept of emigration has existed since the first hominids learned to walk. To move around, for social reasons or just for surviving, has always foot-printed the route of our species. Since our remote African origin until today, humans have explored the whole planet forming a wide range of settlements, apparently different, but with the same necessities. Nowadays, for some countries of the so called first world, immigration is contemplated almost like a plague: solid metal walls have been built to protect their borders and tough strict control systems are used in their customs. However, migration can´t be stopped and human beings, the direct descendents of hominids that knew no frontiers, will continue to move around the world.
