A spontaneous vigil for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris was held in Levenshulme tonight (Saturday 14th November 2015).
The sentiment of solidarity was clear with the people of Paris. Levenshulme people are determined to defend our diverse and strong community against any attacks on an open, multicultural inclusive community with a successful spirit of tolerance and respect for all.
Organised via the local Levy Massive Facebook group the event was a touching reminder of the solidarity of ordinary people with the victims of terrorism and extremism. Small gestures demonstrate that people of all backgrounds, beliefs, people who are religious or not, share a common revulsion for intolerance, hatred, extremism and violence.
Ce soir, nous sommes français.
Égalité, Fraternité, Liberté.
