This week marks a year since the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine and the kosher supermarket in Paris that left 17 people dead. Thousands of people gathered at the Place de la Republique afterwards in a show of global solidarity. People left notes and drawings at the base of the plaza's statue, which become an informal memorial of sorts -- even more so after the November terrorist attacks. As France considers how to permanently memorialise all the victims, RFI meets a group of people "17 Plus jamais" who have been taking care of the informal memorial for the past year.
