CHARLIE HEBDO LIVES

CHARLIE HEBDO is as much a part of    the fabric of French life as baguettes and Beaujolais. Difficult to define but just as important as Voltaire, Descartes and Sartre.

Assassinating its artists and writers won't kill its spirit of iconoclasm that continues in the mind of every reader.

And now that cheeky irreverence has reached millions more who had never even heard of CHARLIE HEBDO before yesterday's act of savage ignorance propelled it into their lives.

Today, all over the world, people are reading CHARLIE HEBDO, laughing at the cartoons, having their minds opened, changed and jolted by it. And next Wednesday, CHARLIE HEBDO will be published as usual in all its crass, offensive glory.

We pay hommage to the brave artists, journalists and others who died for the freedom of expression yesterday:
 

Frédéric Boisseau (janitor)
Franck Brinsolaro (Charb's police bodyguard)
Jean Cabut "Cabu" (cartoonist)
Elsa Cayat (psychoanalyst and columnist)
Stéphane Charbonnier "Charb" (cartoonist and editor-in-chief) 
Philippe Honoré (cartoonist)
Bernard Maris (economist, editor, columnist)
 Ahmed Merabet (police officer)
Mustapha Orrad (proofreader)
Michel Renaud (guest)
Georges Wolinski (cartoonist)
