The Union of Students in Ireland wish to express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families, the Government and the people of Kenya over the senseless attack in Garissa University. We stand in solidarity with the students affected by these heinous attacks and we share in the sorrow of all who are grieving.
We urge the Kenyan government to oppose all forms of terrorism and to ensure that educational institutions are protected in dispersing knowledge and cultural understanding. Education, respect of freedom of expression, and tolerance of all faiths and none must be safeguarded. There can be no place for such senseless acts of violence in civil society.
USI remembers the innocent students, police officers and member of the military killed in the attack. We send our utmost sympathies to those injured in the attacks and we hope for a full recovery for all. We want to extend our condolences to the bereaved families of those killed.
