An ever-present threat

It has been under attack over the past few years. When, on November 13, 2015, the terrorists struck at the Bataclan and on the terraces of Parisian cafes, it was the freedom to live in harmony and to listen to music that was targeted.

Nor to what extent their freedom remains fragile and must be protected. The assassination of the professor, in the midst of the trial of the perpetrators and accomplices of the Charlie Hebdo attack, and shortly after the chopper attack perpetrated by a young Pakistani in front of the former premises of the weekly, tragically reminds them of this. .
