Rallies in Valence and Paris

While travelling this last weekend, it was good to hear that the peaceful rally in Valence in support of Pierre, whose family live in nearby Chabeuil and Thomas was very well attended.  Unfortunately, a delayed train meant that I could not get to the solidarity rally held by French journalists at the Trocadero on Sunday but that was shown on the 19/20 news and had a good – and illustrious – turnout.

Jean-Michel Creisson and Marc Dandois should, by now, be in Niger with  Reporteurs sans Frontières and our thoughts are with them all.  Let us all hope that the President of Niger grants clemency to Pierre, Thomas and their driver, al Hassane, and that Pierre and Thomas can return home.
