In Shock About Paris Attack
The European Film Academy wishes to offer its condolences to the families and friends of those killed and express its shock about the terrible attack at Charlie Hebdo. They died for our freedom of expression, a freedom which is a universal human right and the heart of democracy. They knew the danger - those cartoonists and journalists who’ve been working for years under the protection of the police have been brave soldiers of democracy.
The European Film Academy stands with the world-wide journalism community and all those who are ready to defend our right to the freedom of expression. Our hearts are with you. We are Charlie! Nous sommes Charlie!
