The provocative commemorative front page of Charlie Hebdo
Last January Paris experienced a series of deadly attacks led by extremists linked to Daech/ISIS that targeted the Charlie Hebdo offices’ and a Jewish Grocery. These killings then led to huge support gatherings’ of citizens across Europe under the slogan “We are all Charlie”.
The 11th of January 2015 thus became a symbol of the fight against terrorism as well as against racism, anti-Semitism and for freedom of expression.
Beyond civil gatherings, tributes to the 17 who died (cartoonists, journalists, policemen, civilians) were particularly marked by a march of Head of States representatives.
One year later, but only months after the even more deadly attacks perpetrated on the 13th of November again in Paris, France commemorated the attacks of Charlie Hebdo with the unveiling of commemoratives plaques at targeted places.
Charlie Hebdo, however, decided to pay a tribute to its deceased colleagues and the victims by stating on its front page its everlasting anti-clerical position and freedom of expression with a provocative cartoon of a Kalashnikov bearer and bloodstained God.
