Paris, Brussels, responding to the attacks

Latest update : 11 June 2016.

The killings in Paris at Charle Hebdo and the Hyper Cacher (kosher supermarket) in January 2015 provoked a broad debate on the radical left about the nature of satire, attitude to religion, Islamophobia, and the left’s weakness in the immigrant communities in most European countries. These debates were give a new impetus by the November 2015 attacks in Paris, and in those of March 2016 in Brussels. International Viewpoint first published contributions to these ongoing debates in early 2015, and is continuing to do so.
