#JeSuisCharlie: Campaign condemns lethal attack on French satirical publication

ZFBot

The lethal attack against the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo, claimed the lives of 12 people that were gunned down in cold blood.

Among them, several talented French cartoonists, including veteran artist Georges Wolinski, along with his colleagues Cabu, Charb and Tignous.

Charlie Hebdo was targeted again in the past, as it openly mocked the oppression of religion – Muslim and Christian alike – and used caricatures to satirize the political and multicultural composition of modern France.

On the Internet and at several public demonstrations and vigils held in memoriam of those that were killed, the phrase “Je Suis Charlie” – I am Charlie – was used.

The homepage of the Charlie Hebdo publication displays a black page with the same message, and a link to download a PDF file with the phrase in several languages. The domain JeSuisCharlie.com was also registered today, and is pointing to the Charlie Hebdo web site.

On Twitter, the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie is being used to display one’s support of freedom of expression. Hundreds of thousands of people have used the hashtag so far.

The attack on a satirical publication is a mindless act of violence that should be condemned by everyone, regardless of religion.
