Buzek on the fifth anniversary of the bombings on London’s public transport system – 7 July

Speaking at the start of the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday, European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek said on the fifth anniversary of the bombings on London’s public transport system:

“Today marks the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the public transport system in London which killed 52 people and injured nearly 800.”

“We remember what happened on 7th July 2005 in London and we will never forget. On this day especially, our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims.”

“The bombings in London were one of the worst acts of terror perpetrated on European soil. Let me say to bombers and terrorists – that no matter what they do, they cannot win because we value every single life. No terrorist or terrorist action will ever be able to diminish or destroy our faith in core values such as fundamental human rights.”

“Terrorism is an attack on all of us, an attack on the very fabric of our democratic society. It can never been justified. Europe will always stand united in its fight against terrorism of all kinds.”
