Terror attack survivors urge public to fight terrorism

Survivors Against Terror, a British group of survivors of terrorism and families of those killed by terrorism, have released a plan to fight terrorism and stand up to hatred, reports BBC News. Before the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing, 41 members of the group released an open letter offering a five-item plan. Signatories included survivors and families of attacks in Paris, Manchester, Bali, 7/7 and Tunisia.

Part of the Survivors Against Terror’s letter is here.

  • Please keep your focus on honouring the memory of those who have been killed. Terrorists often attack partly to gain notoriety. We should deny them it; their names don’t deserve to be remembered.
  • Give to appeals to help the victims of attacks and demand government provide the high quality services that survivors need.
  • Ask media and social media organisations to do far more to take on and shut down those driving hate.
  • Support our emergency and security services to do their job. If you know something or suspect something, tell them.
  • Take on hatred wherever you find it. Very few of us will ever meet a terrorist, but lots of us will experience those driving hatred. Hatred is the sea that terrorists need to swim in, if we take on that hatred, we dry up that sea.
