Milwaukee Erects Replica of Eiffel Tower for Tribute

The City of Milwaukee will show solidarity with Paris, at a Monday evening gathering downtown.

Over at UWM, students will gather in Spaights Plaza around 4:00 or "as the sun sets," to remember people lost in recent terrorist attacks - not only in Paris, but also in Beirut, Egypt, Tunisia and Syria.

"At this time especially, our thoughts go out to the students from these countries that we have been privileged to have in our program, and to our current and former UWM students in France, to whom we offer our support," according to the university's Center for International Education and the Alliance Française de Milwaukee.
