Distripress the International Association for the Promotion and freedom of the press, which brings together nearly 400 publishers and distributors, reported the exceptional mobilisation of distributors in support of Charlie Hebdo.

For the first issue after the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris the global distribution community will work together to ensure not only the sales success of this edition but more importantly sending a strong message supporting freedom of expression. 

Press distributors will waive their fees for the edition scheduled for release on Wednesday January 14th including MLP in France, Naville in Switzerland, INP in Portugal, LMPI in Canada, AMP in Belgium, SGEL in Spain and all the Presstalis subsidiaries both in France and abroad.

In addition to the international markets who normally receive Charlie Hebdo (8 countries plus the French overseas territories) 20 more have asked for the magazine of which 7 will be supplied this week.

"This exceptional international cooperation demonstrates the commitment of Distripress members for the right to think and write freely and to fight for fundamental publishing freedoms" says President of Distripress Carine Nevejans.

Distripress condemns attack on French publisher Charlie Hebdo

Distripress today strongly condemned the murderous attack on the offices of French satirical publisher Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

"We join the global outrage at this atrocity and see this as not only being a brutal and cowardly act against the French publisher and its innocent staff but as an attack on freedom of the press generally. Distripress members want to express their shock at this barbaric act and to send their sympathy and condolences to the victims and their families" said Distripress President Carine Nevejans.


Distripress is a trade association based in Zurich but with a global membership of over 300 Distributors and Publishers from 70 countries.
