VIDEO TRIBUTE: FRANCE: ‘ RALLY OF DEFIANCE & SORROW HONOURING VICTIMS OF PARIS BLOODSHED ‘

#AceNewServices – Featured Post: FRANCE: Jan.11: A rally of defiance and sorrow, protected by an unparalleled level of security, on Sunday will honour the 17 victims of three days of bloodshed in Paris that left France on alert for more violence AP reported.

Unity against extremism is the rallying cry for the hundreds of thousands expected to attend the gathering, including the Israeli prime minister and the Palestinian president.

Hours before the rally was to start, France’s enormous Republique plaza began to fill with people.

The Sunday rally, dubbed a cry for freedom, will commemorate the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre and comes after three days of stand-offs and hostage situations, with one terror suspect still on the run. Latest reports, however, indicate the suspected woman might have been in Syria at the time of the attacks, which took 17 lives, journalists and policemen among them.

It will be an unprecedented manifestation that will be written in the history books,” Prime Minister Manuel Valls said. “It must show the power and dignity of the French people, who will cry out their love of liberty and tolerance.

Starting at 14:00 GMT, the rally will have tens of thousands marching down three major routes in the capital. They will be joined by world leaders, including the Palestinian and Israeli leadership, leaders from Germany, Britain, other NATO countries and representatives from the Arab League, as well as the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

This is expected to present a formidable security challenge for France’s law enforcement, whose presence has been boosted across the board, with tens of thousands already guarding sensitive locations like schools, places of worship and others – more than 2,000 are being deployed in addition.

Top US security brass will also arrive, and they will meet with their European counterparts in Paris to discuss an anti-terrorism strategy.

On Saturday, some 700,000 people marched in solidarity in Paris, Orleans, Nice and other cities. Candlelight vigils were held for the victims.

The Yemeni branch of Al-Qaeda is widely thought to be the group that coordinated the Charlie Hebdo attack. A statement sent to several media outlets by an alleged member of the group claimed it as “revenge for the honor” of Prophet Muhammad. The kosher shop situation that transpired later was motivated by similar feelings, that Islam is being berated and mocked by the West.

Twelve people, including four noted cartoonists, were killed in the original attack and have since come to symbolize a non-violent fight for freedom of expression across France and the world. The global outcry of sorrow and condemnation followed three tense days, with the Twitter hashtag #JeSuisCharlie (“I am Charlie”) gaining some of the widest popularity ever witnessed on the social network, with over five million reposts.

Some news outlets in a show of solidarity reprinted Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons. On Sunday, just as world leaders were gathering to discuss security and the global fight against terrorism, one such paper – the Hamburger Morgenpost – was set ablaze. However, police have not yet confirmed that the arson was indeed related to the Hebdo situation. No one was injured in the fire.

France is not alone in its quest to send a message to the terrorists. Hundreds of Australians also took to the streets in Sydney. They gathered at Martin Place, which became the scene of a deadly siege in mid-December, to show support for the victims of the French attacks, as the global show of solidarity continues.

PARIS: ‘ FIRE BREAKS OUT IN FRANCE’S PUBLIC RADIO HQ AND STAFF WERE EVACUATED ‘

“The fire is not put out but it is under control,” said Paris fire brigade spokesman Gabriel Plus, adding that there were no victims and that there was no longer any risk of the fire spreading to other parts of the building.

Photographs circulating on Twitter shortly after the fire broke out showed thick black smoke billowing from upper floors of the building on the banks of the Seine river in the western part of the French capital.

“Staff … had to be evacuated because of a fire,” said a Twitter message from France Info, one of several public radio channels housed at the building, the Maison de la Radio.

PARIS: ‘ ACTIVIST GROUP FEMEN RUN WILD THROUGH STREETS OVER RECENT ARRESTS ‘

#AceWorldNews – PARIS – October 28 – Topless feminist group FEMEN was at it again, and is beginning to prove too athletic for some cops to catch.

The video shows the half-naked ladies running away from the police, and dodging the law enforcers like skillful footballers. For some time, the police’s attempts to catch the fleeing ladies failed.

At one point there is a slapstick moment where an officer trips over and slams into a building while chasing the flock of bare-chested females.

The topless women rallied in central Paris in front of the Palace of Justice in support of an arrested member of the feminist group. Over 20 FEMEN members were eventually arrested.

Their fellow activist, Iana Zhdanova, was arrested on October 15 for stabbing a statue of Russian President Vladimir Putin. She was fined 1,500 euros ($1,897) by a Parisian court for destroying the wax statue at the Grevin museum in June.
