JOINT STATEMENT

European solidarity !

The issue of islamophobia, which mobilizes us in Europe, was brutally re-activated in North America, at an unexpected scale. Surrounded by pro-Israeli anti-Semites, Donald Trump signed on January 27th the shameful Muslimban decree forbidding the entry into the United States of nationals from Muslim countries considered globally as potential terrorists.
