FEPS Statement of Solidarity with the people of Norway



The Foundation for European Progressive Studies wishes to express solidarity and sympathy with the people of Norway after the tragedy on 22 July when a fra-right sympathiser murdered 69 young social democratic activists on the Norwegian island of Utoya. As a society known for its tolerance, egalitarianism and democratic values, it is all the more disturbing to see Norway becoming a victim of the malignant scourge of extremism.
