The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has released its first cover since Friday’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, France, that left 129 people dead.

“They have weapons,” the cover says. “Fuck them. We have champagne!”

Charlie Hebdo was itself the target of a terrorist attack in January that left 12 journalists and cartoonists dead at the magazine’s Paris office. 

On Friday, Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Joann Star released a series of illustrations about the attacks. One read: “Friends from the whole world, thank you for #PrayforParis but we don’t need more religion! Our faith goes to music! Kisses! Life! Champagne and joy! #Parisisaboutlife”
