On January 29th, 2017, six Muslims were murdered at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City, a mosque in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood of Quebec City, Canada.

Six people were killed including Ibrahima Barry (aged 39), Mamadou Tanou Barry (aged 42), Khaled Belkacemi (aged 60), Aboubaker Thabti (aged 44), Abdelkrim Hassane (aged 41) and Azzedine Soufiane (aged 57)

Nineteen others were injured, including Aymen Derbali, who is now paralyzed.

Vigils, lectures, film screenings, and gatherings are taking place across Canada to commemorate the Quebec Mosque Shooting and to discuss the issue of hate, anti-Muslim bigotry and violence in Canada.
