Hundreds gathered in Daley Plaza Sunday afternoon to remember the 17 people who lost their lives this past week in France.
The rally was planned to coincide with a march of historic proportions going on in France. Many people came with flags and homemade signs that showed their support for the people of France, including the victims of the recent terror attacks.
Organizers of the Chicago rally said it's important to have the gathering because terrorism doesn't just impact France, but rather people all over the world.
In order to protect those at the rally from potential danger, a large police presence was gathered as well.
The rally is expected to continue until around 5 p.m. with a moment of silence followed by the French national anthem at about 4 p.m.
