Night Falls in Paris

As the day draws to a close in France, thousands upon thousands have gathered in the Place de la Republique to show outrage and solidarity in the face of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack. The crowds are carrying signs, chanting “Liberte,” and are projecting the words, “Not Afraid” alongside Charlie Hebdo covers onto Republique’s famous center monument. The protests have now gone on for five hours.

These photos are all from Sam Schechner’s Twitter feed. Schechner is a tech correspondent for the Wall Street Journal currently stationed in Paris.

And finally, in a moment of silence for the victims and a show of solidarity for the freedom of expression, the crowds held up pens.
