n the Wake of Charlie Hebdo, Free Speech Does Not Mean Freedom From Criticism

category france / belgium / luxemburg | migration / racism | non-anarchist press author giovedì gennaio 08, 2015 20:23author by Jacob Canfield - The Hooded Utilitarian Segnalare questo messaggio alla redazione

On Wednesday morning, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs, who stormed the building and killed ten of its staff and two police officers. The gunmen are currently understood to be Muslim extremists. This attack came minutes after the paper tweeted this drawing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

An armed attack on a newspaper is shocking, but it is not even the first time Hebdo has been the subject of terrorist attacks. Gawker has a good summary of past controversies and attacks involving Hebdo. Most famously, the magazine’s offices were firebombed in 2011, after they printed an issue depicting the Prophet Muhammad on the cover. - See more at:
