Marina Baja’s French-speaking association took to the streets in memory of France’s victims of terrorism.
They congregated in Benidorm’s Plaza de Sus Majestades los Reyes de España to denounce terrorism and show support for Charlie Hebdo magazine.
More than 300 people formed a circle and observed a one-minute silence in honour of their fellow countrymen who were slaughtered in the two Paris attacks. A manifesto was read out in defence of democracy and freedom of speech.
The act concluded with the singing of ‘La Marseillaise’ (French National Anthem) with ‘Je suis Charlie’ placards held aloft, together with outsized pencils symbolising freedom of speech and the press.
