The TinyPaste statement is given below
Citizens of the world,
On Jan 7, 2015, freedom of speech has suffered hard. Terrorists breached into “Charlie Hebdo” newspaper’s premises and shot several satirical cartoon artists, journalists and two policemen. The criminals are still on the run. Disgusted and also shocked, we can’t fall down, it is our responsibility to react.
First, we wish to express our condolences to the victims’s families of this cowardly and despicable act. We are all affected by the death of Cabu, Charb, Tignous and Wolinski, who were great artists that impressed by their talents all the history of the press and died for its freedom. We do not forget other victims of the attack, just because they were across terrorists’s way, and other injured people still fighting for their life.
It’s obvious that some people don’t want, in a free world, this sacrosanct right to express in any way one’s opinions. Anonymous has always fought for the freedom of speech, and will never let this right besmirched by obscurantism and mysticism. “Charlie Hebdo”, historical figure of satirical journalism has been targeted. Anonymous must remind every citizens that the press’s freedom is a fundament of the democracy. Opinions, speech, newspaper articles without threats nor pressure, all those things are rights you can’t change.
Tackle the freedom of speech is a direct hit to democracy. Expect a massive reaction from us, because this freedom is what we’ve been always fighting for.
We are Anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
