Je suis Charlie - Statement der Young European Socialists zu den Anschlägen in Paris

Young European Socialists (YES) are shocked by the attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo and its employees. The fight for freedom, freedom of speech and expression is far from over even today.Today we express our sympathy for those killed or injured, as well as for their families and close ones, but also to state that our societies should never give in to fear or blackmail of terrorist or extremist groups demanding censorship or silence. Instead we need to respond with more tolerance, democracy, openness and humour. We need to defend and strengthen the freedom of expression and diversity of our media as well as our societies.

We respect the memory and admire the courage of those who stand for these principles in their work, and through whose work the rest of us can critically assess the world around us.
