Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney has today expressed solidarity with the victims of the Paris attacks and all victims of global wars.

He said; City centre walkabout

“We pledge our solidarity to the people of Paris at this terrible time.

“We extend deepest sympathy to the victims and survivors of Friday night’s horror and send our love and respect to all the people of that wounded city with which we enjoy close ties of history and community.

“Our thoughts are with all victims of the global wars which engulf us today, wars in which it is civilian populations who suffer most and who are most frightened as we saw clearly in Beirut also this weekend.

“We stand with the people of Paris in their message to the assailants of ISIS, in the words of the famous civil rights song; ‘We are not afraid’.”
