LFIQ Statement on the 7/7 atrocities in London

We unreservedly condemn the attacks today on ordinary Londoners and mourn the loss of life and hundreds of injuries. There is no justification whatsoever for these attacks and we hope that the perpetrators are swiftly brought to justice and that popular vigilance and security action will prevent any further attacks. We do not yet know who carried out these murderous assaults but they have all the hallmarks of terrorist actions in New York, Washington, Bali and Madrid. We hope that no one will take the law into their own hands, as some did against the Irish community when the Provisional IRA bombed England in the early 70s, and attack Muslims. Those who carried out these attacks wish to foment sectarian strife and we should not play into their hands.
Gary Kent, Director, Labour Friends of Iraq
