Solidarity with Charlie Hebdo

No journalist deserves violence or intimidation, no matter how offensive their work. The NS condemns the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, and stands in solidarity with all murdered journalists around the world.

By New Statesman

Yesterday, a group of journalists were murdered as they sat down for their editorial meeting. It was an attack on liberal values, and freedom of the press. Here at the New Statesman, we might not agree with all of Charlie Hebdo‘s editorial decisions, but no journalist deserves violence or threats for what they publish. 

Reporters Without Borders records that 66 journalists, 11 fixers and assistants, and 19 citizen journalists were killed last year in the pursuit of their duties. In solidarity with all murdered journalists, we are republishing a selection of Charlie Hebdo covers.

The press is doing well … it’s exciting the fools!
