“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell


Wednesday 07 Januray 2015. A deadly assault on freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Nine journal staff who worked for French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo were shot dead in their Paris office while attending an editorial meeting. Two police officers and a maintenance worker also lost their lives.

I’m left cold by this event… the mood here in France right now is one of shock and disbelief that people can be killed for making satirical cartoons. My thoughts go out to all those affected today.

Love is stronger than hate…

Charle Hebdo Love is stronger than hate
