Charlie Hebdo and Alternative Culture.
Oz No 40.
Early SWP Cadre Manuel.
There has been debate about the relationship between Charlie and English speakers.
Apart from the snide, bordering on racist comments that Charlie was ..er ‘racist’ there is the idea that we anglophones are incapable of understanding Charlie.
Well, the alternative left tradition I come from is well in the line of Charlie.
I have read their cartoonists from my adolescence onwards.
As one can see Oz magazine, not to mention Nasty Tales, published similar material in the past.
I am a French speaker but do not claim any special privilege on this point about satire though wish simply to say: Charlie is greatly loved.
