Statement of the President of the Socialist International George A. Papandreou on the terrorist attacks in Paris  

 

The  terrorist attacks  that took place in Paris , on  November 13,  aimed  to undermine the ecumenical values inspiring open, democratic and multicultural societies.

They were designed, to cultivate fear. Fear that can easily  become a fertile ground for populism, xenophobia, totalitarianism and violence.

They were designed to break solidarity links between citizens and peoples, to tarnish the notions Freedom ,Equality , Fraternity . Three words , that can be inconvenient for some. Three words , for which we have the duty to struggle more passionately, expressing in practice our solidarity with the French people  and all those who have chosen France as their homeland.

Today, our thoughts are with the relatives and friends of the victims of those horrific attacks. Our thoughts are in the fights we need to give all over the world , for protecting democracy, social justice and  an open Europe reflecting the global values of humanism and freedom.

  Déclaration du Président de l’ Internationale Socialiste,  George A. Papandreou 

Les attaques  terroristes qui ont eu lieu le 13 novembre à Paris, visaient à saper les valeurs œcuméniques  qui inspirent les sociétés ouvertes, démocratiques, multiculturelles.

Ils visaient à cultiver la peur, terrain propice au populisme, la xénophobie, le totalitarisme et la violence.

Ils visaient à briser les liens de solidarité entre les citoyens et les peuples, a ternir les notions Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité . Trois mots inconvenants  pour certains. Trois mots pour lesquels nous avons devoir de lutter encore plus passionnément, tout en exprimant notre solidarité avec les Français et tous ceux qui ont choisi la France comme patrie.

Aujourd’hui, nos pensées sont avec les familles et amis des victimes de ces horribles attaques. Nos pensées sont aux combats que nous devons donner,  au monde entier pour protéger la démocratie, la justice sociale ainsi que une Europe ouverte, reflétant les valeurs globales de l’ humanisme et des libertés.
