We have received with shock the news from the barbaric killings in France. And we have just now received the news that Bernard Maris, a founding member of Attac France, is among the victims of this attack.
Our thoughts and condolences are with all of you in France, Attac France and in particular with the families and friends of the victims. In this terrible moment it is for all of us to stand up for the freedom of expression but also for a free and democratic society and to not allow our governments to use such terrible events to advance measures that reduce citizen rights and our freedom.
Let us hope and make sure that we manage to follow the way our friends and society in Norway has taken when they had to deal with such a horrible event a few years ago.
We are in our thoughts with you.
