Due to the recent terrorist attack in Paris, France that took the lives of innocent people, JCI Zimbabwe joins the members and citizen of France for a call for action and peace.
On Wednesday, January 7, two hooded, black-clad gunmen entered a French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, killing four cartoonists and eight others. As of now, French officials view the attack as an act of terrorism and the assailants are still on the loose. In addition to the 12 people killed, 11 were wounded, including four that remain in serious condition.
French President Francois Hollande calls for swift action to find the actors of the terrorist attack, bring them before judges and condemn them as soon as possible. French officials have heightened security across Paris, including other media outlets, transportation and public stores. The Charlie Hebdo office where the shooting took place is in Paris’ 11th District near Place de la Bastille.
The world is gripped with shock over this senseless killing of the 12 people and injury of 11 others. On behalf of JCI Zimbabwe, we extend our condolences to the people of France and join voices with French authorities to strongly condemn such acts of terrorism and violence in all of its forms. We double our efforts in promoting peace in and out of Zimbabwe. Global peace is a responsibility of each and every one of us and any acts of such violence should be condemned.
Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims and also with the people of France at this difficult time. We hope that calm returns quickly and the perpetrators are eventually brought to justice.
JCI Zimbabwe stands to support the JCI France members as they take action for sustainable, peaceful solutions.
