    Lisboa and Paris: Je suis Charlie

Today at 5pm, at Praça do Município (Town-Hall Square), Lisboa will be next to Paris doing a minute's silence in tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack yesterday at the newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

This way, our city is associated with the silent march that the Paris City Hall will promote in the streets of the French capital from 6pm local (5pm in Lisboa).

This is also another manifestation of the close relationship between Lisboa and Paris, embodied in the Treaty of Friendship between the two capitals. Lisboa and Paris united for Freedom.

António Costa, Lisboa Mayor, the French ambassador and leaders of religious communities in Lisboa will attend this initiative.

 

Lisboa City Hall calls for the participation of everyone, because "Je suis Charlie".
