Eiffel Tower Darkened Today

Today, we want to call attention to France’s act of solidarity with the horrors being inflicted upon the people of Aleppo as they darken the Eiffel Tower.

“This symbolic measure at a building known worldwide will aim to once again alert the international community to the need for urgent action,” Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo’s office said in a statement.

The White Helmets, an organization that has been on the ground helping the people of Aleppo in real time, are also being honored this week with donations to help keep their activism alive.
