Solidarity with the victims and loved ones. (Press release in English)

Each of us at the Commission Nationale Consultative des Droits de l’Homme (CNCDH), would like to express our profound solidarity with the victims and their loved ones. Our thoughts are with them at this appalling time.

Less than a year ago, each of us had reacted to the attacks that had hit Charlie Hebdo and the Hyper Cacher to reiterate the values of freedom of expression, salute the astounding popular momentum and warn against any temptation to direct blame incorrectly; to resist isolationism.

Each of us is deeply shocked and outraged by these massive, concerted and coordinated new terrorist attacks. By targe-ting the heart of civilian life, these despicable acts are not only directed towards the French nation, but the whole of humanity. They seek to attack our values: those engraved in the corner-stone of our Republic - the values of liberté, egalité and fraternité – and, more broadly, the universal values of human rights, based on the dignity of every human person.

We reaffirm the universal, indivisible and non-derogable nature of human rights. And more than ever, we call upon the French people to support these values that make up our common history and to unite around the assertion of our rights and our freedoms.
