In the aftermath of the attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, French president Francois Hollande called for a mass demonstration across France against terrorism.  According to AFP, more than 3 million people participated in the rally, including more than 50 world leaders.  Protesters held posters that read “Je Suis Charlie,” meaning “I am Charlie.” On this day of unity, Christians, Muslims, Jews and people of all other faiths rallied together hand in hand against terrorism.

“They wanted to bring France to its knees. They brought Europe to its feet,” was one of the slogans of the protests.
