The question of maintaining the Christmas market in Strasbourg, as elsewhere in Alsace, always arises. His organization is still on hold for security matters following the attacks in Paris and the establishment of the state of emergency in the territory. While the mayor Roland Ries has to meet the prefect on Wednesday late afternoon on this issue, a petition is to be born on change.org.
