It is also a way to highlight the scourge of bullying.
The whole village of Vendin-le-Vieil gathered this Sunday morning during a white march organized by the family of Lindsay, this 13-year-old schoolgirl, who committed suicide a little over a month ago after being a victim of school bullying. The white march ended with a balloon release in front of the college where Lindsay was educated.
"Children should no longer be bullied at school"
Several hundred people, residents, relatives and college students, were gathered to pay a new tribute to the teenager. A march punctuated by a slogan: "Justice for Lindsay". At the head of the procession, the girl's entire family was present. "This walk is for Lindsay, for our children, for your children. We will not give up, "insisted François Nastasi, Lindsay's father-in-law, at the microphone of Europe 1. "Children should no longer be bullied at school."

There needs to be more initiatives around this issue, he adds. Because in Vendin-le-Vieil, some schoolchildren are always mocked, even threatened. "My daughter is still being bullied and I dropped her out of school so that she could be in healthy conditions to take her certificate," says a mother. "The school may be strengthening the numbers, but there is nothing in place in the school. There is no sanction for taking, nothing. So, we will move, "she concludes at the microphone of Europe 1.
