ATUC message of condolence and solidarity to the people of Sri Lanka

Aberdeen Trades Union Council sends deepest condolences to all those who have lost loved ones or have been caughts up in the terrible terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

Once again we have seen innocent people, this time from the Christian community, targeted with violence whilst practising their religion. Our hearts go out to all those affected.

It is tragic that, so soon after the massacre in Christchurch, we are posting another message of condolence, this time for our Christian brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka.

We stand in solidarity with all victims of terrorism and hate crime, and we reaffirm that there is no place for such hatred in the world. We again pledge to work with people of all nationalities and religions to stand against hate crime in all its forms and for a society built on hope, love and tolerance, which values all people equally.
