    This is such a powerful piece of propaganda because it shows a very important feature of our world and that is to have the freedom of speech. This is a very good way to present Charlie Hebdo's incident.

    31 % of the poeple who saw this think the way I think. The act that was set in Paris was terrible and shocked the world. I don't know who people can say this. I was shocked on the brutality and profeshionality these people did there bloddy core and couldn't understand how they could do this. TERRIBLE!!!!!!

    I think this piece does a great job at focusing on the most important issue at hand: freedom of speech and expression. Instead of creating art about the tragedy, the piece shows strength.

    I believe this particular cartoon is very beneficial in that it's standing up for a nation and industry that suffered the extremely negative results of negative propaganda (from religious EXTREMISTS in this case). It's a reminder that some causes are worth fighting for.

    Freedom of the press is under fire from all angles.

    I feel that this is beneficial because it displays support while offering a reminder that everyone should have the right to speak freely.

    I think this image is very interesting and attractive. The elements in the image is very meaningful. Especially the pencil's meaning.

    Great use of imagery here. The attacks were devastating for the French people and to me this image brings hopes. The incorporation of the French flag, the Eiffel Tower, then pencil (the original mechanism used) creates a sense of togetherness

    This cartoon is very powerful and yet very simple at the same time. It combines three ideas to symbolize a cause.
