Je suis Charlie

It's been a while since something has been posted on this blog. And what's coming now is quite important stuff. What happened yesterday at the redaction of Charlie Hebdo in Paris shook the world. And as a member of Reporters Without Borders, it completely struck me. Being killed because freedom of speech is not tolerated by some people is just incredible. Especially here in the West this is something that remained unimaginable until yesterday...

To all writers, cartoonists, reporters all over the world: Do not shut your mouth, do not take down your pen. Freedom of speech is something that lots of people gave their lives for in history. Make those lives count.

Sincerely yours,
