The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) denounces the terrorist attacks in Paris that resulted in many innocent people, many ordinary people losing their lives. To the working class and the people of France, we express our condolences. From history, we know that terrorist attacks like last night’s in Paris are utilized by the imperialist mechanism, so they can take new antidemocratic measures against the people. To all the workers of France, to all the affiliates and friends of the WFTU, we assure them that we are standing by them during these difficult and dramatic moments. They should know that they are not alone. Our thoughts and our internationalist solidarity are with them.
