It is with sadness that we learned about the shooting deaths of twelve journalists at the French newspaper, Charlie Hebdo. In January of 2012, the paper published an article on Canadian horse slaughter accompanied with a satirical cartoon showing a horse begging a slaughterhouse worker with the (translated) words “No, no, don’t do it. I’ll do it myself.” The cartoon indicated that the horse would rather hang himself than allow a plant worker kill him in the routine and inhumane ways that have been exposed at four separate CHDC slaughter house investigations.
The CHDC stands with all democratic nations around the globe in condemning the violence against those countries that have free speech and an unshackled press.
Here’s a link to our 2012 article about them. Due to the sad events in Paris the article that they wrote may not be available at the moment until they regroup.
