Charlie Hebdo cartoons banned on Dutch train stations: too dangerous

“When three political youth organizations wanted to organize a public show of support for the murdered cartoonists of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, this was refused by the companies operating the advertising pillars on train and underground stations in the Netherlands.

The youth organizations of the Liberal, Labor and Greens political parties wanted to put up posters on train and underground stations with the text “Freedom will always prevail” and one of Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons showing the Prophet Muhammad. The two companies operating the advertising pillars (Ngage Media and CS Digital Media) refused to publish this campaign though.
