Attacks in Copenhagen: freedom of expression once again targeted

Posted on the 16/02/15

Once again, freedom of expression has been targeted in Europe as a terrorist shot attendees at a seminar on ‘Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression” and people at a synagogue in Copenhagen.
Our thoughts go to the victims and their families and to the Danish people.
We strongly condemn this attack against our core values and fundamental freedom and express our deep solidarity to the Danish people, the defenders of Freedom of expression and to the Jewish community. Targeting people because of their origin, faith or beliefs goes against all the values that constitute the European Union and shall not be tolerated.
We call all the citizens in Europe to stay united and to stand up for tolerance and freedom of expression.
