Baudrillard  , p. The horror of the real attack was instantly replaced by a universally recognizable sign that sparked comments and debates regarding the Charlie Hebdo satirical cartoonists and their right to depict the Prophet Muhammad. In essence, jesuischarlie became a symbolic political identity marker, soon to be followed by jesuisahmed and other identifying hashtags derived from the tragedy. In Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda , Noam Chomsky provides a critical analysis of the governmental use of public media in the modern Western world, and proposes that there are two types of democracy: One conception of democracy has it that a democratic society is one in which the public has the means to participate in some meaningful way in the management of their own affairs and the means of information are open and free …An alternative conception of democracy is that the public must be barred from the managing of their own affairs and the means of information must be kept narrowly and rigidly controlled.

Culture Shock - Understanding Portuguese Culture & Communication
Bessora ultimately criticizes the social class of French residents to which Charlotte appears to belong. I said to her. National unity is therefore very close to her place.
Charlotte lives in national unity, which is contained in Paris. People from the projects, especially those from Grigny, live in world terrorism. So she will never set foot in Grigny. Bessora , para. In Le Testament de Nicolas , Bessora positions her lead character, Nicolas, as a victim of the current socio-cultural malaise that has become poignant among the younger working-class French generation. No one can see them, yet almost everyone wants to get rid of them. In rags, they beg or sell you counterfeits. Those heroes have walked across half of Africa or two thirds of the Middle East, but they do not inspire anyone.
They should have sailed on the Route du Rhum or cycled around the world. But now this radical Situationist critique is over. By shifting to a virtual world, we go beyond alienation, into a state of radical deprivation of the Other, or indeed of any otherness, alterity, or negativity … We are dealing with an attempt to construct an entirely positive world, expurgated of every illusion, of every sort of evil and negativity, exempt from death itself.
Moreno (Excerpts): Contemporary French and Francophone Studies: Vol 13, No 2
This pure, absolute reality, this unconditional realization of the world—this is what I call the Perfect Crime. Baudrillard , pp. In publishing overt critiques and analyses of current real phenomena on her blog, phenomena which are not addressed in contemporary media, Bessora simultaneously enters a symbolic war and a war on the symbolic—one modeled after that which Baudrillard imagined after the attack on the Twin Towers.
In this post, Bessora addresses her character Nicolas directly. She explains that she found inspiration for his character in news of young men leaving their families behind in France in order to join the jihad in Syria. Bessora writes: I started to write you in the fall of At that time, people talked a lot about boys and girls who, like you, were leaving. They often ended up torn apart while defending bizarre ideas. I remember a blond boy who surprised a lot of people. You rejected your father, your mother, low-waged slaves.
So you left. Bessora b, para.
At the end of her letter to Nicolas, Bessora references another one of her characters, Alpha, from her graphic novel Alpha: Abidjan-Gare du Nord Bessora , co-written with French illustrator Barroux. Like you, he had no future. He thought he could find a better world in Europe. Abidjan-Paris, his path of disillusionment. As Bessora notes in her letter to him: You hoped for a better world. Toulouse, Antalaya, Alep…The closer you were getting to your ideal world, the more it was slipping away … You could tell, but you did not want to admit it.
Besides Emmanuel, besides Souleymane, the boys and girls around you did not see it. And over there, just like here, one should not question the established order. Ultimately, Nicolas dies in a suicide mission in Paris. Rather than the violence of the real being there first, and the frisson of the image being added to it, the image is there first, and the frisson of the real is added. Something like an additional fiction, a fiction surpassing fiction. Ballard after Borges talked like this of reinventing the real as the ultimate and most redoubtable fiction.
Bessora is of course not a terrorist, nor should she be positioned on the side of the actor of terror. In taking control of her digital paratext, Bessora has been able to address events and concepts which might not have been considered proper for publication, such as her discourse on neocolonialism and the French hypocrisy in relation to the Charlie Hebdo attacks. The history and persistence of the anti-Muslim sentiment in France was then elaborated upon in her novel Le Testament de Nicolas , all the while giving it a digital presence in her direct address to the character, and producing a form of digital mending of the neocolonial woes that bind together the victims of islamophobia, racism, and neocolonialism in postcolonial France.

For weeks after the attack, the face of then twenty-four-year-old French-Algerian Khaled Kelkal, believed to be the perpetrator of the bombing, was plastered on television screens and newspapers. After a lengthy televised assault by the French police on the apartment where Kelkal was hiding, he was killed on live television on 29 September Il est alors possible que Marie soit ma fille, et que, donc, elle existe pour de vrai.
I left the bank eight months ago. I arrive in Paris for the second time. Ninon hosts me for a few weeks, until I find a furnished apartment. Va donc marcher en banlieue! Les banlieusards, surtout ceux de Grigny, vivent dans le terrorisme mondial.
