We Stand With ‘Charlie Hebdo’ in Rejecting Oppression and Violence in All Forms

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (22)

Je Suis Charlie The violence in France yesterday shocked the world. Twelve people died, including Charlie Hebdo‘s lead cartoonist, Cabu, who earlier this week gave a drawing to our friends at French animal rights group L214 denouncing the cruelty of foie gras production. Charlie Hebdo is the only French newspaper that dedicates a weekly column to animal rights, tackling issues from bullfighting to dolphinaria. Violence is a social issue, and violence against humans is linked to violence against other species. Yesterday’s losses are being felt by all compassionate people, including those who stand for animal rights. We at PETA stand with Charlie Hebdo in rejecting oppression and violence in all forms. To those who lost their lives, rest in peace – and to everyone mourning them, we are with you.

    I can’t believe what People do to People and to Animals all over the World! I just don’t understand how People can be so cruel and have no Empathy at all – sometimes starting already at a young age, where will this lead us to and how can we stop it? I just don’t know and feel sad and angry at the same time – almost ashamed of being a Human being myself.

    RIP to all the People that died in an act of unnecessary Violence and my Heart goes out to all their Families and Friends that have to cope with it now.

    PEACE & LOVE

    Killing artists out of frustration is an other proof of lack of education. One can clearly realize that those terrorists do not have a lot of schooling when you hear them speak with poor vocabulary. They become an easy prey for brainwashing, to execute terrible acts thinking that they are heros when in fact they are human trash. We have to clean up this rubbish. Violence against animals has the same rubbish root those people think that they are superior and powerful when they commit those disgusting acts, same thing for the Chinese who torture dogs, rabbits and other fur animals for bloody money, I wonder how they can face their family when they get home with blood on their hands. If they used their imagination to create man made fashion they could still earn their living. But again it is a matter of education. Ignorance is plage.

      Brilliant comment, what I have learnt over the last few years about the Chinese abuse of animal’s, and the practice of halal meat slaughter being a direct contradiction of our animal rights laws have sickened me to the core.
      We have no more right to eat animals, than the Nazi’s had to do what they did.

    Tony Benn would have rejected the killings but he would never have said “I’m Charlie”, supporting in such a way a vulgar and obscene fascist publication.

    • Nicholas gagola commented on January 25, 2015 at 5:22 pm

      Right or wrong, if people don’t like it, don’t look at it.

    Cruelty and oppression of ALL living creatures is wrong. Those who did this to their fellow humans probably started by torturing and killing animals for “fun”. The French should stop the hideous cruelty of foie gras whilst we are about it….

    I am disappointed that PETA is feels that ‘standing with Charlie Hebdo’ is ‘standing against violence and oppression’
    The racist, homophobic, Islamophobic and anti-semitic trash published by this magazine is part of the oppression of minority groups.
    Yes, let’s stand together against violence, and oppression – but in all its forms.

    • Qasim J commented on January 24, 2015 at 3:48 am

      Thank you kate for having the same opinion as me and thinking in a very fair and rational way i am also very disappointed with PETA for supporting this.

      If they wish to condemn violence and opression they should stop and look around the world at all the oppressed nations…..

    • Nicholas gagola commented on January 25, 2015 at 5:20 pm

      Stop this magazine from printing what it wants, and you are at the start of a dictatorship, would you like to live like that, if people ignore these kind of comments and cartoons they diffuse the situation without doing any thing.

  • masashi ogawa commented on January 21, 2015 at 10:43 pm

    あなたも同じように食べなさい。そうしないとわかりませんか。

  • susanna nylander commented on January 22, 2015 at 3:25 am

    please stop terrorism

  • Barbara Edwards commented on January 22, 2015 at 10:23 pm

    Why are these killers so horrendously angry all the time, killing democratic people? Why do they think they are always right to do this? Why do they perform such UNGODLY acts in the name of righteousness?
    They don’t seem to understand what life and democracy is about; maybe they have NOT grown up yet or they were born without the important feeling of empathy for others.
    Is their education lacking?
    I wish they could all be calmer and learn to love and respect instead of dashing around killing people.
    What is the best way to educate them in how to use gentleness?

    C’est génial de voir qu’à l’étranger on parle autant de l’hebdo “Je suis Charlie”! Tous ces gens solidaires, ça fait vraiment plaisir! Même Cabu avait pensé aux pauvres oies torturées pour le foie gras!! Merci Cabu! Je suis Charlie existait déjà dans les années 60, juste le nom était différent. Quelles caricatures! Merci pour lui!

  • Sarah Cowan commented on January 28, 2015 at 10:58 am

    I know people can sort out their problems in a peaceful way as I have in my own life, I have been put under a lot of pressure from people for a fight and still come out without a blow now less

  • sharon riley commented on January 28, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    cruelty and oppression of ALL living things is wrong!
