Stop the opportunistic selling of "Charlie Hebdo" on your sites

This petition had 44,079 supporters


Ever since the January 7, 2015 attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the bloody 48 hours that followed, a small number of people have tried to make a profit from these tragedies by selling copies of Charlie Hebdo online at outrageously high prices.

It is shameful that anyone would try to profit from these brutal killings that shocked France and the world. Le Bon Coin (a French classified ads website) has removed all ads of this kind, even old ones, without needing to be asked. We ask that the biggest online merchants like eBay, which currently has Charlie Hebdo listings with prices up to 100,000€, do the same.

As a photographer and defender of freedom of the press, I think these sites should be ashamed! The deaths of people should not be used as an opportunity to make money. These opportunistic sales do not reflect the spirit of Charlie Hebdo!

Thank you.
