Syrian cartoonist becomes sensation

Twenty-eight-year-old is one of activists using non-violent means to bring about change in their country.

    The conflict in Syria has bred a new generation of activists, who are using creative non-violent means to bring about change in their country.

    Some of them continue their struggle from outside. Until two years ago, 28-year-old Juan was a frustrated young cartoonist whose career was going nowhere in Syria.

    Juan had always been critical of the Syrian regime, but always in subtle ways. He was never too blunt.

    Now his work is getting a lot of attention.
