Worries concerning a possible civil war in Bolivia have simmered for now. However, cartoon blogger (for a lack of a better term) Joaquin Cuevas was celebrated for his recent parody of the campaign for the Constituent Assembly, which originally said “Todos Juntos Hacia la Asamblea Constituyente.” (Everybody Together Towards the Constitutent Assembly). Instead, his campaign was for a possible civil war in Bolivia sponsored by non-existent National Campaign of Regionalism and Intolerance Pro-Separation of Bolivia.
His blog El Inofensivo Chico Larva [ES] continues to attract rave reviews for his take on current events in Bolivia. Many commenters came from the Bolivian blogger community, such as Ron Del Dia, who said, “I'll pass along this cartoon because it made me reflect…I hope it does the same to my friends on this side of the country.” Others also recognize the talent of Cuevas, Danilestat of Preambulo Rojo [ES] said, “I now become aware that there is talent in this country, you have a gift for social commentary.”
Sometimes they say “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but judging from many of the comments admiring and causing others to pause and reflect on the situation in the country; perhaps, a cartoon is worth just as much.
