    Je Suis Charlie !

    A/HRC/RES/16/18 is a disgrace, an afront to freedom of speech, an insult to the dead Charlie Hebdo staff members.

    Backdoor islamic blasphemy laws – will we be executing blasphemers as they regularly do in Pakistan?

    Who could support such intolerance towards freedom of speech?
