Freedom of expression is a human right

Freedom of expression is a human right

After the brutal attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, where 12 people were killed, the freedom of expression is at discussion. EUDY’s statement is that everybody is entitled to the freedom of expression, also the people working at Charlie Hebdo. Satire is a way to raise discussions about sensitive topics. And for that 10 workers and 2 cops were killed. EUDY is thinking about the families of those deceased and hopes freedom of expression is never oppressed again in the future. Also you as a young deaf person has the right to freedom of expression, but use it responsibly.
