Statement of the Socialist International on terrorist attacks in the United States

11 September 2001

The Socialist International strongly condemns the barbarous terrorist attacks perpetrated in the United States.

These despicable acts against innocent people, which have created such pain and suffering, are no less than an assault on the entire world democratic community.

In standing together with the victims and their families and all those affected, the Socialist International once more reiterates its abhorrence of terrorism.

No effort should be spared by the international community to bring to justice all those responsible for these atrocities and rid the world of the scourge of terrorism.

The SI expresses its full solidarity with all women and men in grief in the United States and around the world as a result of these crimes, and offers its sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who were so atrociously murdered.
