We too are Charlie

I am CharlieI am Charlie
The invention of printing is one of the most important victories of thought on ignorance and obscurantism.

D'Etienne Dolet Editions de Minuit, writers, publishers and printers together led the fight for the emancipation of nations. Our values, our ethics, our community of thought as our differences have been worn by the men and women who built our intellectual heritage. Through them, new ideas of yesterday have become a foundation on which to freely exercise our intelligence:

"Laughter is the nature of man" (Gargantua)

"It is that there is the danger for those who speak; and I am silent. "(Jacques the Fatalist and His Master)

"The true birthplace is one where we wore for the first time an intelligent look at yourself my first homelands have been books. "(The Memoirs of Hadrian)

"Vice is the most despairing of ignorance that thinks they know everything and that then allows to kill. "(The Plague)

"And by the power of a word / I am starting my life / I was born to know you / To name te / Liberty. "(At the appointment German)

Essays, novels, poetry, sacred or iconoclasts texts, apologies and pamphlets, are the "spiritual home" of humanity, with its major or sensitive works, his evidence and his mistakes.

By collecting first editions, bibliophile seeks to regain and maintain the origin of this thought, when she was courage before a force when she was a fragile thing that he was so simple to silence. Preserve and protect the record of that speech is also our responsibility to us, bibliophiles and booksellers.

In our libraries stands erect resistance yesterday which allowed the consciousness of today, the image of the humanist and international momentum of 11 January 2015. In this proximity, we, ordinary citizens can be proud and grateful.

For if we are CHARLIE Charlie Hebdo is Montaigne, Voltaire, Hugo, Zola, CAMUS, ELUARD ...

And all we can recognize ourselves in the founding document of our democracy, a luminous beauty, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Drafted and adopted on 10 December 1948 by the 58 member states that made ??up the General Assembly of the UN, it is inspired by the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of 1789, which itself s' based on the text of the complaint book of the Third Estate of Paris, a legacy of the Enlightenment ...
