The day before the huge January 11 demonstration in Paris against the
killings at the *Charlie Hebdo* office, another demonstration marked
another set of killings in the French capital.

On January 10, tens of thousands of Kurds and their supporters marched to
mark the assassination two years earlier of three Kurdish women activists
of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and to protest the French government’s
foot-dragging on clarifying the truth about the crime.
