Criminal attack against human life and peace
Declaration of Gennaro Migliore, head of the Prc International Department

The present day marks a dramatic escalation in the strategy of violence
in the world.

The tragic attack which has killed people and destroyed
US symbols must be severely condemned, as we have always condemned and
will irreducibly condemn any act of terrorism against defenceless women
and men. Thousands of lives have been disrupted by an absurd and criminal
suicide strategy.

We share the unanimous grief of all those who feel the
sorrow and the tragedy which affected thousands of families and friends
of the victims, whose only fault was to be there, in a place hit by
this absurd and criminal violence.

During the last few hours claims for responsibilities
and their prompt denials do not give a clear picture about who is behind
this horrible attack, indeed the whole international community significantly
condemned it. We feel a great concern about democracy and we urge the
conscience of any woman and man to enhance the space for democratic
acting and practice to avoid any reaction inspired by hatred and violence.
We must defeat the logic of violence and retaliations which would weaken
the already fragile and deteriorated guarantees for a peaceful living
together after this traumatic change of the international scenario.

Rome, 11th September 2001
