I bring my plaque «Freedom of Expression Square» every year to reinforce the message. Recently Charlie made its new cover on the return of obscurantism and I find that it is indeed dramatic compared to the great walk that was held after Charlie; there was hope, we thought that the worst was behind us but that's not true, it's sad.»
Parisians paid their respects to the victims of the 2015 Charlie... Еще Hebdo attacks on the fourth anniversary of the incident in Paris on Monday.
Mourners lay flowers at the entrance of the former Charlie Hebdo offices in memory of the 12 people who were murdered in the attack, while artists sang songs and showcased artwork in support of the satirical magazine.
Twelve people, including a police officer, died in the attacks on the magazine's offices. The assault was carried out by two gunmen who were later killed by security forces outside of Paris.
Commemorations are also being held for the victims of the Hypercacher kosher supermarket siege, which occurred just two days after the Charlie Hebdo attack. Four people were killed during the siege.
