'I'd prefer to die standing than live on my knees' (Editor Stephane Carbonnier - murdered this week)

The words from one of the bravest freedom fighters. Brothers in arms with a pen as a weapon.

The enemy as been among us for centuries

Pretty sure this is the first "revolution" actually. Overthrowing of the King etc...

Then again, we could go back to 1215...

Naji Salim al-Ali, born 1938 was a Palestinian cartoonist. He drew over 40,000 cartoons, which generally deal with the situation of the Palestinian people, depicting suffering and resistance and criticizing the Israeli occupation, the Palestinian leadership and the Arab regimes. Unlike many political cartoonists, specific politicians do not appear in person in his work.

He is perhaps best known for his drawing of Hanzala - a sketch of a 10-year-old boy who stands barefoot 'in rugged clothes with his back turned and hands clasped. When asked what exactly the cartoon represented, the prize-winning artist and former president of the League of Arab Cartoonists explained it demonstrated his age when forced to leave Palestine and would not grow up until he could return to his homeland

On 22 July 1987, while outside the London offices of al-Qabas, a Kuwaiti newspaper for which he drew political caricatures, Naji was shot in the face and mortally wounded. Naji al-Ali died five weeks later in Charing Cross Hospital. It is still not known who killed him.
