Leaders of Brisbane’s government, business and French communities will unite in the Brisbane CBD tonight to remember and commemorate the victims of the tragic coordinated terror attacks in Paris.
Honorary Consul for France in Queensland, Lady Jane Edwards AM, said Queensland’s thoughts and prayers went out to those affected by the tragedy in Paris.
“This evening we will hold a minute’s silence to show our support to the people of France during this difficult time,” Ms Edwards said.
The service will commence at 6.00pm this evening (Monday 16 November) at King George Square (266 George St, Brisbane City) and will be attended by The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, Premier of Queensland and Lady Jane Edwards AM, Honorary Consul for France in Queensland, as well as other government officials and community leaders, including Bernie Ripoll MP and Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart, honouring more than 130 victims and 350 persons injured in the attacks.
French consular officials, expats and members of the general public are invited to attend. A condolence book for the people of France will also be available throughout the week at City Hall.
