* Cory Doctorow points out that France has exhibited a terrible record on free speech since the Charle Hebdo murders, and that that is a terrible legacy for an initial outreach post-murders which presented itself as a pro-free speech display of emotions and solidarity. I agree that they've built a terrible legacy since and that a lot of the politicians participating have had long careers of being shitty on free speech. I also don't know enough about last year's public expression to know if it was free speech driven or sympathy for the victims driven. That wouldn't matter in terms of pointing out the record now, but it would reduce some of the poison levels that come with charges of hypocrisy.
