A student-organised vigil and rally will be taking place outside the Hartley Library this afternoon to show respect for those affected by the recent terror attacks in Paris.
The event will start at 2pm outside the main entrance to the Hartley Library. A variety of students will speaking publicly about their own insights into the event.
Jack Davies, the organiser of the vigil, told Wessex Scene:
I organised the event as a sign of solidarity with the people of France and to demonstrate that the students of Southampton are united against the forces of terror, fear and ignorance.Everyone will get the chance to have their say. It will be not just a vigil but a defiant stand against those who seek to divide us.
Those who attend are asked to wear red, white and blue to send out a strong message ‘that the colour and exuberance people associate with France can never be dulled by the use of terror’. More information can be found on the Facebook event.
