Adeje joins in the international ‘minute’s silence’ in memory of the victims of terrorism

This morning, Monday November 16th, Adeje council joined in the minute’s silence as a “sign of our pain and solidarity with the French people and in memory of all the victims of terrorism and injustices in the world”, said Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga.

“We unite with all those who believe in democracy”, he said, “and in defence of democratic values which represent our civilisation and which are currently under serious threat.

“We join with all the institutions who are holding this minute’s silence to call attention to this scourge, to be aware of the reality that no-one is exempt. This is a danger that affects us all and is a direct threat to the tenets of justice and equality which we hold dear…”

The minute’s silence, convened by FEMP (the Spanish Federation of boroughs and provinces) was held on the steps of the town hall.
