UNI Global Union condemns vile terror attacks

Tuesday 17 November 2015

UNI Global Union and our family of 1000 unions in over 150 nations, sends its  sympathy and condolences to France and all countries whose citizens were murdered and injured during the vile terrorist attacks in Paris.

UNI Global Union’s General Secretary, Philip Jennings said, “We condemn these acts of terror and mourn this tragic loss of life in Paris.  We also remember the victims of the terror attacks in Beirut, Sinai, Tunisia and last month in Ankara.

“The perpetrators and those behind these acts of terrorism intend to divide us, to make us question our confidences in democracy and in the attainment of peace. Our humanity to one another unites us in the face of these barbarous acts.  We mourn this terrible loss of human life and stand together in our condemnation of those responsible.”

The UNI Global Union General Secretary has sent messages of condolences to all the affiliates affected and UNI has joined in the minute’s silence held today to remember the victims.
