147 Croatian students from the Zaghreb University lay on the ground for 147 seconds in honor of the 147 Kenyans killed in the Garissa terror attacks. The students lay in front of their campus building in the capital city Zagreb on Thursday. There symbolism voiced solidarity with the victims of the Al-Shabaab attack which occurred on April 2nd, 2015.

Last week, students from the University of Capetown in South Africa held a vigil for the victims of last week’s Garissa terror attacks. The students were remembering fellow students all the way across the continent whose lives were brutally cut short.(Read: South African and Venezuelan students pay tribute to fallen Garissa victims)

Also in the last week, students at the Central University of Venezuela also stood in solidarity by re-enacting a scene in one of the classrooms where several students’ bodies were found.

The National Union of Teacher (UK) also paid tribute to the Garissa victims by displaying placards with number 147 on them representing the number of those killed. They also remembered 43 Mexican teaching students who went missing in their country.
