PARIS, France (VIP NEWS) — Paris`s clubs have pledged to reopen all the venues as an act of defiance to the "living with fear" expected by the perpetrators of the attacks.
In a statement titled `Dance more than ever`, the clubs pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks of November 13 and to their colleagues and friends who died over the weekend and outline plans to reopen in the coming days.
The statement reads: "It is the family of Paris`s night life that was targeted by these attacks, as well as a certain approach to life that we stand for on a daily basis. Music, dancing, sharing, getting together, the social bond, and diversity are values that we represent and that, obviously, were targeted for destruction by these terrorists.
"This will not work. Today we mourn the loss of our friends and all the victims. But we will not accept that we should live in fear. This is why we have unanimously decided to reopen our venues as soon as possible. Some will open as soon as Wednesday, some next week or the weekend after next, with reinforced security measures, and with the goal to thrill our public more than ever. Nothing and nobody will prevent Paris from dancing."
The list of signatories include A la Folie Paris, Badaboum, Batofar, Concrete, Djoon, le Faust, Glaz’art, Gibus, Java, Mercredi Production, La Machine du Moulin Rouge, Queen, Rex Club, Social Club, Showcase, Virgo, Wanderlust, Weather Festival, Yoyo and Zig Zag Club.
