The local organizers of the Sunday demonstration and their supporters downloaded multiple images on social media depicting people, of Asian and European appearance, many of them in white T-Shirts with a "Securite Pour Tous" (Security for everyone) slogan. The people marched in central Paris, from the Place de la Republique to the Place de la Bastille.
The protesters, including children, grownups and elderly people, carried flags of France and placards reading "I love safe France," "Stop to racist prejudice," "[Zhang] Chaolin died for nothing," and demanded better police vigilance and security for the French Asians.
According to media reports, the number of demonstrators could be up to 14,000.
Asians amount to some 1.5 percent of the French population, mostly inhabiting major urban areas, like Paris.
