Los venezolanos también somos Charlie

CharlieThe only sane way to respond to the horrific events in Paris today … is to make sure the artists’ pictures get the maximum worldwide exposure.

Because this is not just a fight of radical Islam against a French newspaper. This is the latest battle in the fight of backwardness versus modernity, a battle that our own government is eager to participate in.

We are all Charlie, because whenever an authoritarian group of thugs pick a fight against cartoonists, we are all in danger.
