No ‘marche blanche’ in Nice this Sunday

No ‘marche blanche’ in Nice this Sunday

By Staff Writer - July 28, 2016

niceOrganisers of the “white march” in memory of the 84 people who died in Nice on July 14 have said they have not given up hope that the walk might be allowed to go ahead at some future date.

The local government authority, the Prefecture, had said on Thursday that the event, planned for this Sunday, could not go ahead because of security concerns, with 30,000 to 40,000 people expected to participate.

“We are people of our words and are confident that the Prefect will understand our need to honour our fallen and send a message of peace, as happened in Paris after the events of November 13 last year, or the minute of silence [in Nice] on July 18, which took place safely and smoothly,” the march organisers said.

March organisers are asking for a meeting with the prefecture to take place at some point during the next few days to set a new date.
