Following the series of terrorist attacks on Paris on Friday night, an event has been created to show Lancaster University’s solidarity and support to all the people affected by the attacks.

The event is scheduled to be held on Monday, Week 7 at midday in Alexandra Square. Created just over two hours ago, the event already has over 350 people attending.

Speaking to SCAN, the co-creator of the event, Maxime Romain, said that they had created the event to “show our deepest sympathies to the to the victim’s families and all our love and support to the people of France”.

The exact details of the event have not yet been disclosed, but are expected to be available shortly. At the moment, a minute’s silence in memory of the victims is being proposed. Mr Romain told SCAN that “people will be given the opportunity to speak if they want to do so. The French National Anthem may also be sung”. He was also keen to stress that everyone is welcome to attend, including members of staff at the University.
