“We will never give in to violence” – French ambassador to St. Lucia

AmbassadortThe French Embassy in Saint Lucia on Monday, Nov. 16, 2015 observed a moment of silence in memory of the victims of terrorist attacks in Paris, France last Friday night that left at least 128 people dead.

French Ambassador to St. Lucia Eric de La Moussaye said this “tragedy that struck France to her heart is the violence of a war”

He added: “And perhaps even worse because the victims were defenseless civilians cowardly murdered on Friday night. It took humanity in its entirety that is concerned by this tragedy, which is quite clear as we witnessed the extraordinary momentum of solidarity shown to our country since Friday.

“By this attitude we maintain that we will never give in to violence and that we will remain committed to our values of humanity, freedom and respect of human rights. I also wish to take this opportunity to extend my proper gratitude to all those who were there for the relatives since Friday, thank you especially to you for being with us this morning.”

A condolence book was also signed at the brief ceremony.

Opposition Leader Dr. Gale Rigobert, United Workers Party Leader Allen Chastanet and former St. Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Sir James Mitchell were also in attendance.

  1. You people should be ashamed of yourselves. Talking about reap wat you sow shate. That's like saying, ISIS had the right to kill innocent lives. France is not the only country to do wat they did to whoever. Every single country has their history with slavery or whatever.

    Don't cast the blame only on France. ISIS is attacking every bloody country in the world. Some St Lucian's really need to Educate themselves before posting non sense!!!

  3. Shouldn't the distinguished ambassador have the honesty to state that "They [France] that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind"?

    Western governments and their Middle Eastern client states have created ISIS (mercenaries) to do the dirty work of toppling any sovereign states who do not kow-tow in obeisance to Western hegemony (see Ukraine & Libya); and now they want to cry crocodile tears when their snake in the grass recoils and bites them in the asp (hee-hee - pun intended)?
