Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité: FISU strongly condemns Brutal Attacks in Paris.

LAUSANNE - Last weekend, 128 countries gathered in Lausanne at the 34th General Assembly of FISU as a symbol of unity and brotherhood among peoples.


Hardly few days later, on Friday 13 November, one of us was hit hard by a series of deadly attacks. These have unfortunately destroyed lives, wiped out entire families.


FISU and the University Sports Movement defend, since its creation in 1949, the values of tolerance, peace and exchanges between all nations and this without any distinction.


We rise against this blinding violence that has as sole objective to divide the citizens of the world, to spread hatred and the rejection of others.


The University Sports Movement still refuses to yield to the pressures of terrorists and enemies of peace.


Let us gather all together so that tomorrow violence no longer finds a place to grow and youth can still thrive in a world of peace and fraternity.


Oleg Matytsin, FISU President
