Further to the terrorist attacks on 26 June in Isère and Sousse, the President of the CPMR Inter-Mediterranean Commission and President of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region, Michel Vauzelle, stated “The horrific events that occurred in Tunisia and France today highlight the full meaning of the slogan ‘We are all Mediterranean’, standing together united against the same threat regardless of whether we live north or south of the Mediterranean”.

This statement made on behalf of the whole Inter-Mediterranean Commission falls within the ongoing awareness campaign ‘We are all Mediterranean. This campaign is based on the values of solidarity, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, socio-economic integration, active citizen participation and cooperation, the fight against racism, ethnocentrism and xenophobia.

A public petition has been launched as part of the campaign.
