FREE EXPRESSION MUST BE VIGOROUSLY DEFENDED.

WHILE PARIS IS MOURNING FOR TERROR ATTACK VICTIMS AND THE EIFFEL TOWER GOES DARK IN TRIBUTE, WE’D LIKE TO EMPHASIZE AFTER THE CHARLIE HEBDO SHOOTING THAT THE RIGHT TO HAVE AND OPENLY EXPRESS A VIEWPOINT , EVEN IF IT CAN BE CONSTRUED AS OFFENSIVE, IS WORTH DEFENDING VIGOUROUSLY. OTHERWISE, THE FREEDOM TO CRITICIZE SOCIETY’S LEADERSHIP AND INSTITUTIONS STARTS TO ERODE.

WE, AT CONVERSATIONPRIVEE.COM / OFF-THE-RECORDMESSAGING.COM DO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND IF THE VOICES OF REASON ARE TO PREVAIL, THEY MUST BE RAISED FIRMLY AGAINST ATTACKS THAT STRIKE AT THE HEART OF DEMOCRACY.

THE USE OF BRUTALITY AND INTIMIDATION TO SUPPRESS FREE EXPRESSION MUST BE VIGOROUSLY FOUGHT.
