The EIBF regards with horror the unspeakable attack perpetrated against Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
No words are strong enough to express EIBF’s total condemnation of such an abominable crime against democracy and freedom of expression, principles that booksellers defend with the most vehement vigour in their daily professional practice.
A democratic society relies on untrammelled freedom of expression and publication which must never be undermined.
EIBF expresses its deepest sympathy to the families, friends and colleagues of those murdered and wounded.
Je suis Charlie.
