This cartoon was first published in The Costa Rica Star, September 21, 2018.
The United States State Department was warning citizens in and planning to visit Costa Rica of the strike, warning that it was causing delays in traffic and at airports, and that there were even accounts of violence.
Expats in Costa Rica initially said the strike wasn’t a concern to them at all, and they weren’t even seeing that much from it. By last week, many were changing their tone and complaining about strikers. My editor told me it was definitely hurting tourism and travel. Now, the courts have ruled the strike as illegal.
There’s a new cartoon up this week. Go check it out. It’ll be posted here next Sunday.
Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!
Watch me draw.
