Attack in Vienna: Our thoughts are with the victims, their relatives and the injured

We are deeply shocked by this week’s attack in the centre of Vienna. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families, the injured and all those who witnessed this abominable act of violence. We wish all those who were injured a quick and complete recovery.

Free and constitutional societies are vulnerable and need individuals to support and defend them against terror. Let's stand together and defend our shared values by living without fear. and As a community, we stand up against all forms of radicalism and extremism.
