Charlie Hebdo to publish next week despite bloodbath

People take part in a vigil in Place de la Republique hold a banner with one of the legendary front pages of the magazine.

The French satirical newspaper whose staff was decimated in an Islamist attack will publish as scheduled next week, one of its surviving staff members told AFP on Jan. 8.

Charlie Hebdo will publish next Wednesday to defiantly show that “stupidity will not win,” said columnist Patrick Pelloux, who is also an emergency room doctor.

He added that the remaining staff held a meeting on Jan. 8 to discuss its future.

“It’s very hard. We are all suffering, with grief, with fear, but we will do it anyway because stupidity will not win,” said Pelloux.

He said that the publication would have to be put together outside Charlie Hebdo’s headquarters, which were not accessible following the massacre…

    WEDNESDAY 14/1

      I foresee a bunch of mo cartoons in that issue. I also see it being very popular and being a collectors edition and I see possession of it being labeled a hate crime by a bunch of the MSM.

        For now the French MSM are biting their tongues. Among media offering interim assistance are Le Monde and Le Canard enchaîné, another satirical paper.

        A million copies are planned—in part, I suspect, to raise money for widows and orphans of staff. The real test will be whether Charlie can survive beyond next week. It was never especially profitable even before decapitation.

    I had wondered if they would. They have the right stuff.

    Will the CBC show pictures of the new edition, or will they continue to show pictures of the Pope?

  • I wonder if it’s possible to order a copy.
