A tribute to Charlie Hebdo massacre

Updated Tuesday 13th January 2015

Society Matters cartoonist Gary Edwards pays his tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Over the course of three days, 17 people in Paris were brutally murdered, including the cold-blooded massacre at the satirical French newspaper, Charlie Hebdo. Hundreds of powerful cartoons advocating for the freedom of expression have since flooded the internet. Here at Society Matters, our cartoonist Gary Edwards has created his own sketches to pay tribute to the victims and to condemn the violence.
