Cartooning the Prophet Zineb El Rhazoui

2015 Oslo Freedom Forum
May 26, 2015

Moroccan-French journalist and Charlie Hebdo columnist Zineb El Rhazoui recounts the horrific attack at the offices of her organization that took place in January 2015. Spared only because she happened to be on vacation, El Rhazoui pays tribute to her murdered colleagues. She then provides a passionate defense of freedom of speech, arguing that criticism of religion and other establishment structures should be encouraged rather than avoided.
