DernièreTable Française de l’année: mercredi, 14 décembre

Freedom of speech is a jealously guarded civil right on both sides of the Atlantic.  But where does one draw the line?  Here in the U.S.  libel and hate crime laws have been made to help us negotiate these treacherous waters.  Consider this most recent event that reulted in the firebombing of the French satirical bimonthy, Charlie Hebdo.  What do you think of this paper’s articles, and how they have been defended by the French?  Would similar articles be allowed  here in the U.S?  If so/not – is this a good/bad thing?

Voici le site internet pour vous faire réfléchir d’avantage avant de venir discuter.  Pour vous donner la possibilité de parler d’avantage, nous allons commencer la discussion en petits groupes de 2-3 avant d’en faire le rapportage de nos idées au groupe.  Venez nombreux, et avec vos opinions diverses pour chauffer la conversation !
