Hexie Farm (蟹农场): Patriotic Turtles

For the latest instalment in his CDT series, cartoonist Crazy Crab of Hexie Farm makes a commentary on public opinion in China by portraying a crowd of turtles who ignore and keep silent when they hear the voice of human rights. However, when they hear the call of “Patriotism” from the Ministry of Truth, they shout out and take to the streets to show their sense of “national dignity.”
