Leon Kuhn - revolutionary socialist cartoonist

Today is the day of Leon Kuhn's funeral - and while I was not able to be there there is a wonderful obituary of this fine political cartoonist in this week's Socialist Worker, giving a good sense of his all too short life and tremendous work.  Many of his campaigning posters, such as the famous one of (the now financially as well as intellectually and morally bankrupt) British Nazi Party fuhrer Nick Griffin became classics, and by way of paying tribute to his memory and pointing people towards the fight to kick the British Nazis out of the European parliament this May I will republish his portrayal of Griffin below on Histomat.  RIP Leon.
