Birmingham stands shoulder to shoulder with Nice

My message to the Mayor of Nice Philippe Pradal following last night’s horrific attack.

Dear Monsieur Pradal

I am writing from our city to yours to express deep sorrow and sympathy at this time of great sadness.

The people of Birmingham stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Nice and you are in our thoughts and hearts following the horrific attack.

Europe’s great cities stand for liberté, égalité, fraternité and an attack on your city is an attack on all who hold dear the principles of freedom, equality and solidarity.

Today you are in our prayers and I know your city will not be defeated by those who seek to destroy all that we hold dear.

My deepest sympathies.

Cllr John Clancy (Leader of Birmingham City Council)
