FRANCE REMEMBERS VICTIMS OFTHE ATTACKS IN PARIS

France commemorates today officially first anniversary of the Jihadist attacks in Paris with homages in each scene of the killing, being aware that terrorist threat will continue..


French President, François Hollande, toured all those places, in which 130 people were killed and hundreds was injured, beginning from Stadium of France and ending at Bataclan.

At Stadium of France was a single speech, not by President but by one of the sons of Manuel Dias, first person who died in the attacks. He notes his father should have liked that his name wasn’t liked to hate.

For that, he ended his speech with a long live tolerance, long live intelligence, long live France!

Chief of State followed with ceremonies, together with Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, at bar terraces and restaurants where terrorists shoot or exploded their explosive belts on November 13 2015 at night (Carrilon, Petit Cambodge, Bonne Bière, Comptoir Voltaire and Belle Équipe).

Bataclan

Last place was Bataclan, hall that was recorded the largest massacre (90 dead) and tonight reopened their doors after one year of reconstruction with a concert by British Sting, that was full of emotion for survivors and relatives of the victims that were present.

At Bataclan, as in the previous places, Hollande repeated the same sequence. First, he unveiled commemorative plaque, after a man and a woman read name of the 90 persons that were killed there and at the end he put a crown of flowers and they observed one minute of silence.

In a subsequent act opened to public – official ceremonies were surrounded by a strong safety device that kept out many curious onlookers- was organized a colour balloons launch as symbol of the diverse character of the victims before city council in the eleventh district in Paris.

Notre Dame

On evening, a mass in homage was scheduled at Notre Dame cathedral and a placement of lights at Saint Martin channel, and Paris people was asked to put candles on the windows of their homes at night.

Jihadist attacks on November 13 2015, much more than those were on January also in Paris in that year, are an open scar in France, that far from closing, is worst above all by attack last July 14 in Nice, when a radicalised Tunisian killed 85 people with a truck.

France not only is during a year in state of emergence – Prime Minister, Manuels Valls, declared today that it will be prolonged in 2017, at least a months before after elections in spring- but also he has assumed that will be target of new fundamentalist attacks, as Chief of Government has warned.

One of the visible responses before that threat are the 10,000 soldiers that are patrolling with their weapons on the streets, strategic centres or sensitive areas (stations, airports, religious sites) to discourage and to give a feel of safety.

A safety device that also has increased several levels in all public official areas, including schools that are among targets pointed in the actions in France by Islamic State (ISIS), author of the massacres on November 13.

In a country that is presented itself as torch-bearer of the secularism, religion (and specially, Muslim religion) is the focus of the political debate, with controversies on burqini in the beaches, menu halal in the school canteens or veil in public areas.

New antiterrorist laws and state of emergency allow measures as expulsion of foreign people suspected of Jihadismo, to do house researches without warrant or also to limit movements of people without previous decision of a judge.

An exceptional situation that would continue and that it has already reduced tourist attraction in France: in the first ten months in 2016, the arrival of foreign has been reduced 8,1% in relation to last year.
