Je Suis Charlie

"I may not agree with everything you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Freedom of speech, of opinion, of expression, was brutally and barbarically attacked on Wednesday 7th January 2015. Not for the first time, and most likely not the last. 

But along with the deep sense of sadness and loss, people around the world stand united with the cartoonist on the side of freedom. In defence of our liberties and basic human rights. Of our basic freedoms of expression.  

In defence of the power of both pen and laughter, for even in the darkest times laughter may shine a bright light and even against the mightiest sword a pen stands mighty.
