Thousands of people gathered in Sergels Torg in central Stockholm Sunday for a demonstration in support of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and the other victims of terrorism in France.

                

The organizers, Reporters Without Borders and the Association of Swedish Illustrators and Graphic Designers, encouraged all who took part to bring along pens to hold in the air.

“The pen is a powerful symbol for the power of the word,” Jonathan Lundqvist, president of the Swedish branch of Reporters Without Borders, tells Swedish Radio News. “When we choose between the pen or the sword, it is the pen we will take with us.”

In Paris hundreds of thousands took part in a mass rally Sunday, in a show of solidarity after the Charlie Hebdo attacks. Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven was among some 40 world leaders including French President Fran çois Hollande,  British Prime Minister David Cameron, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
