A final tribute filled with emotion. This Wednesday, November 16, at 4 p.m., the white march started from rue Goubet. It pays tribute to Lola, the schoolgirl who was found dead in a trunk in the 19th arrondissement of the capital.
The case had generated very strong reactions throughout the country, both at the level of the population and in the political sphere. Indeed, part of the right and the far right had taken up the case to denounce the non-application of the OQTF (obligation to leave French territory) of Dahbia B., the alleged murderer. Faced with this, the teenager’s family had reacted and asked that “urgently cease, and be withdrawn, any use of the name and image of their child for political purposes”.
For this white march, organized by Lola’s parents and by the town hall of the 19th arrondissement, the same idea is maintained. In a press release shared by Actu.fr, the family asked that this march “take place in serenity and calm, far from political and media unrest.”
This gathering is thus intended to be “free from any political expression and demonstration. Neither scarves nor banners will be accepted”, according to a specific request from the parents, relayed by Le Parisien. In the procession, the family, classmates, parents of students, friends, neighbors and residents mingled. This new event will have made it possible to pay a worthy tribute to Lola.
