‘Stupidity Will Not Win’: Charlie Hebdo Plans to Publish Next Week

According to what one staffer has told Agence France-Presse, Charlie Hebdo will continue to print its magazine along its regular schedule, with a new issue coming out next Wednesday.

“It’s very hard,” said Patrick Pelloux. “We are all suffering, with grief, with fear, but we will do it anyway because stupidity will not win.”

Hebdo’s determination to keep printing comes as major American news outlets balk from showing its covers.

The French satirical magazine lost eight of its journalists and its editor in chief Stéphane Charbonnier in an attack on its offices yesterday. The attacks were met with an outpouring of support by other cartoonists and media establishments.

Charlie Hebdo, an equal opportunity offender of pieties, has long made a habit of mocking the Islamic prophet Muhammed on its covers. It’s offices were previously firebombed in 2011.
