Solidarity with Paris and France


Channel islands authorities wish to publish a message following the terrible terrorist attacks perpetrated in Paris on Friday 13th November.

Following this act of barbary, numerous peoples have lost their lives and political and civil representatives would like to address to the Victims families, the injured and the whole French population their sincerest and deepest condolences. Attacking innocent individuals is coward and the Channel Islands firmly condemn these terrorist acts.

By solidarity, the Channel Islands have organized many vigils and gathering ceremonies so the French community of the islands receives all the support they need from us. It is important that we all share the French sorrows for “our friends, our cousins”.

“We have to remain united and to stay together to preserve and defend our shared values of Freedom Liberté Egalité Fraternité which are so important against hatred and terrorism” agreed the Jersey and Guernsey Chief Ministers
