The Eiffel Tower on Wednesday went dark as the lights were switched off to show support for the people in Aleppo, Syria.
The monument was descended into the darkness from 8 PM (1900 GMT) in Paris.
Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalgo said, that it was a protest at the unbearable situations for civilians in the city where fighting raged during the day.
Rebel forces announced a new deal to allow residents to be evacuated from the city on Wednesday.
Hidalgo said in a statement, “before the lights on the tower were switched off that the final roads of Aleppo held by the opposition are being taken by the regime, creating hundreds of victims”.
Several hundred people demonstrated in Paris on Wednesday in support of Aleppo’s residents. Few protestors wore a piece of red cloth, which symbolize the blood spilled in the fierce battle.
On the Other hand, people are pouring their outrage on Twitter for both the rebel forces for their actions and Paris’s act of showing solidarity. They say that showing solidarity by switching off the lights of Eiffel tower won’t make a difference. This is somewhat true.
Let’s see what people or Twitter say about it:
