Together and in solidarity with our Spanish affiliates, we are all shocked and horrified by the brutal and vile attacks perpetrated in Barcelona and Cambrils, Catalonia.

Our thoughts are with the Spanish people, the families and friends of those who were murdered, those who were injured.

We pay tribute to the security forces, emergency services, and the police for their bravery and professionalism.

Through courage and solidarity we show that we will never bow or be cowed by those who wish to destroy our way of life, divide our open communities and attack our democratic structures.

For the values of solidarity, humanity and justice.
