Thousands gather to show their solidarity with Charlie Hebdo victims in France and Britain as Francois Hollande declares tomorrow a day of mourning

As darkness fell across Europe, tens of thousands took to the streets to show their solidarity with those killed by gunmen at the offices of satirical French weekly Charlie Hebdo.

Many of the protesters, meeting in Paris, Madrid and Berlin, have adopted the slogan ‘Je Suis Charlie’ – I am Charlie – holding up banners and placards printed with the words. Others were seen carrying enlarged versions of the some of the newspaper’s anti-Islamist cartoons.

In London, hundreds of people filled Trafalgar Square at a silent vigil for those killed when masked gunmen stormed the newspaper’s headquarters. Many held pens, pencils and notebooks in the air to show their support for the journalists, cartoonists and police officers who lost their lives.

The gatherings were held as French President Francoise Hollande declared tomorrow a day of national mourning tomorrow in respect for the victims of this morning’s attack…

        This will be the tipping point when post modernist appologies and political pandering are forced to face reality of the angry electorate.

      It’s still just the beginning.
      Here’s hoping for the European Spring.

    The Grand Arch Cultist of the Muslim Council of Britain has just been on the BBC.
    Can you guess what he said?
    It’s nothing to do with Islam,
    We are the real victims here,
    We need help and support,
    etc, etc, etc

    Until the Western Governments grow (a) pair, demonstrations will achieve nothing. How soon they will be called racists and nazis?

  • Allan

    Fuck the faux demonstrations.Screw the placards. How about every major newspaper have the cartoons on their front pages in the morning?

    • What you said.

  • No day of mourning. Day of Action.

    It’s Bacon Day, everybody.

    All the solidarity in the world will do nothing if the politicians continue to bury their pointy little heads in the sand and continually declare that there is no problem with islam. Politicians of all stripes are cowards who fawn over the islamists because of political correctness gone mad.

    The only solution to the growing danger of islam…that includes ALL muslims as there are NO moderate types in THAT cult…..is to cut off the head of the snake by arresting those preachers of hate known as imams and deporting them all. Everywhere they can be found. Then do NOT under any circumstance allow muslims to gather together.

    AND, no more importation of those bloodsucking freeloaders from islamic countries.
