Artists respond to Charlie Hebdo shootings

Je Suis Charlie — Illustrators and cartoonists around the world rally around to show solidarity for those murdered at Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris.

Following the tragic death of twelve people at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine headquarters in Paris today, cartoonists, illustrators and artists around the world are posting images declaring their solidarity.

Masked gunmen – armed with a Kalashnikov and a shotgun – attacked Charlie Hebdo this morning, Wednesday January 7, in what appears to be an act of retribution for controversial images the magazine has published.

The magazine has frequently been criticised – and prosecuted under anti-racism laws – for publishing cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. Its offices were firebombed in 2011 after it published a spoof cover featuring a cartoon of the Muslim prophet.
