Faith communities across Brighton & Hove stand together as One Voice
Brighton & Hove ‘One Voice Partnership’ reaffirms: “That communities, council and police stand together in solidarity following the tragic incident in Pittsburgh over the weekend. We do not tolerate violence against innocent people, wherever it takes place. Together we speak with one voice against extremist perspectives and terrorist actions in the city and elsewhere.
“The incident at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh has deeply saddened us all. We send our deepest sympathies to the families of those who have lost lives, those who have been injured, and all affected communities. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.
“It’s now even more important for all our communities to demonstrate that we will not let any terrorist action divide us and continue our great tradition of unity and respect for all. We stand firm that these acts of violence, anti-Semitism and hate must not go any further. We stand together to counter the threat from far right. We must look out and care for each other and ensure that individuals and communities are not singled out in our city.”
