SHOWING SOLIDARITY: Hundreds took to the streets in Palma to show support for the victims of the Paris attacks.
CROWDS gathered in Palma in solidarity with journalists murdered in Paris.
More than 400 people took to the streets in Palma – and 200 others in Ibiza – on Sunday (January 11) to show their support for the victims of the senseless gun attack on the Paris-based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead last week.
Organised by French citizens living in Mallorca, the event in Palma attracted people from different nationalities who wore black and white and carried signs reading “Je suis Charlie” (I am Charlie).
Honorary Consul of France on the Balearic Islands, Michiel Magnier, expressed his heartfelt thanks to the people of Mallorca and called for permanent and peaceful coexistence amongst all creeds and ideologies.
Meanwhile, members of the Insular Council of Mallorca gathered on Thursday January 8 at 10am before the official seat of the council on Calle Palau Reial to show their support for the victims of terrorist attack, and the Trade Union of Balearic Journalists held a rally at 12pm outside the French Consulate in Palma on Calle Caro to defend freedom of speech.
