Nikahang Koswar is an Iranian journalist and cartoonist who was forced to flee his country in 2003 for trying to sketch too realistic a portrait of the society fashioned by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Now living in Canada, Nikahang launched Khodnevis.org, a collective news website, in December 2009 in order to continue the fight for freely reported news and information and “to give a voice to the voiceless.” He regards exile as a way to independence and believes that a free and critical press is the best way to “keep [politicians] humble.”
