Former Jersey Deputy Sean Power is planning a vigil this evening to pay tribute to the victims of the attack on a satirical magazine in Paris.
It follows similar gatherings around Europe last night. Large crowds in cities including Berlin, London and Brussels held placards, pens and notepads in the air as a mark of respect to the 12 people murdered at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine.
Mr Power is calling on islanders and members of the French community to join him at 6pm in the Royal Square for one hour.
He says the idea evolved out of discussions on social media last night.
