In part of what French officials say is the nation’s largest turnout on record nationwide, an estimated 1.5 million people took to the streets in Paris on Sunday to show solidarity with satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo and the victims of subsequent terrorist attacks that killed 17 people last week. More than 40 world leaders joined the unprecedented turnout, marching in silence to take a public stand against terrorism and to support freedom of speech.

On Wednesday, two gunmen suspected to have jihadist ties opened fire at the offices of Charlie Hebdo — an organization that has a history of ridiculing religion, including Islam — killing four cartoonists and eight others. Amid the outpouring of support for Charlie Hebdo after the tragedy, many have come to see the massacre as an attack on freedom of speech. But that claim has sparked a debate among scholars, cartoonists, and journalists about whether there are double standards when it comes to the type of “free speech” that the West tolerates.

In a similar vein, Reporters Without Borders, the France-based nonprofit that defends freedom of speech and freedom of the press internationally, has called out several world leaders for marching despite maintaining abysmal freedom of press records on home soil. In a statement translated into English via the Guardian, RWB said:

We should show solidarity with Charlie Hebdo without forgetting the world’s other ‘Charlies’,” said Christophe Deloire, secretary general of the campaign group. “It would be intolerable [if] representatives from countries that reduce their journalists to silence profit from this emotional outpouring to … improve their international image … We should not allow the predators of the press to spit on the graves of Charlie Hebdo.

Some countries, like Egypt and Russia, have jailed journalists for being critical of the government. Turkey is currently prosecuting 70 journalists for looking into government corruption. Based on RWB’s 2014 index of 180 nations, almost half of the countries represented in the Unity March have “noticeable problems” and “difficult situations” regarding freedom of speech — if using a grading system, those would be C or D, respectively. To see where countries present at the Unity March really stand on issues related to freedom of expression, ANIMAL looked up their index rating on RWB. Check out our comprehensive ranking below:
