Reaction to Islamist Murderer.

Teachers’ Union Declaration.

The SNES-FSU learnt with horror of the assassination of a professor of history and geography from the college of Bois d’Aulnes (78). This horrific act is said to be linked to the ongoing use of cartoons of Muhammad as part of a CME (moral and civic education) course. Tonight, the entire educational community is in shock.

The SNES-FSU offers its deepest condolences to the family of the victim and gives our support to all his relatives, colleagues and students.

This horrific assassination was committed against a teacher who was doing his job.  The heart of the mission of education was attacked: learning and empowerment.

The school is a place where the experience of debate builds citizenship and freedom of conscience. This is an essential task of the public education service. To attack a professor is to attack a pillar of our democracy and our Republic.

The SNES-FSU reiterates its unwavering attachment to freedom of expression. This obligation must not, and will never be, dropped in the face of terrorism.

Today, Saturday, October the 17th,the SNES-FSU calls on the staff of National Education service to hold a minute of silence, at 11 a.m., in  schools that are open, in memory of our murdered colleague.

Faced with this tragedy, everybody should rise to the challenges this presents. The SNES-FSU calls on everyone to refrain from any exploitation of these events, and to respect the mourning and pain of our community of educators.

Call for a Minute’s Silence.

Charlie Hebdo:

Charlie Hebdo shares the feelings of horror and revolt after a teacher in the line of duty was murdered by a religious fanatic. We express our deepest support to his family, loved ones and all the teachers.



The Father of Murder, a man who had railed at the Teacher on the Internet. is amongst those arrested.
