Deal Pier Tribute to Victims of Paris Atrocity

I joined 200 residents at Deal Pier on Sunday in tribute to the victims of the Paris atrocity.

We show our support for people in Paris and were proud to raise 'Je Suis Charlie' signs to show solidarity for staff at Charlie Hebdo magazine, where staff were murdered for publishing satirical cartoons.

It was fantastic to see over 200 people attend the tribute. People in Deal stand shoulder to shoulder with Parisians after these horrific attacks. The attack in Paris was an attack on freedom of speech and who we are as a society. The Deal gathering shows just how strongly people feel about the attacks in Paris and protecting our freedoms.
