Blog: Olly WehringCharlie Hebdo

Olly Wehring | 8 January 2015

As a journalist of over ten years, I was shocked and appalled by yesterday's attack on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris. That 12 people can be murdered for upholding the ideal of freedom of speech goes against everything I hold to be true.

Much as just-drinks concerns itself with the trials and tribulations of the global drinks industry, my role as editor is anchored firmly to the belief that freedom of speech and expression is a human right. It is so desperately sad that anyone should have to die defending that right.

My thoughts are with the friends and family of the journalists, cartoonists and police officers who died yesterday.
