Many customers are asking us how they can help Charlie Hebdo in this difficult period. At Le Forum, your French bookshop in Australia, we are trying our best to get the next issue of the weekly magazine which is to be released in France on Wednesday the 14th of January. However due to the situation, there is no guarantee that we will be able to do so.
Please note that for a longer term support, you can subscribe to Charlie Hebdo by clicking here.

Nous remercions les nombreux clients qui nous contactent pour savoir comment ils peuvent aider Charlie Hebdo. Nous mettons tout en oeuvre pour faire venir le prochain numéro de Charlie Hebdo qui sortira en France le mercredi 14 janvier 2015. Toutefois, au vu de la situation critique, nous ne pouvons apporter aucune garantie que cela sera possible.
Je vous rappelle que pour un soutien durable, les abonnements au magazine Charlie Hebdo sont disponibles sur le site du Forum. Cliquez ici.
