The Municipal Governments of both Torrevieja and Orihuela held a minute’s silence on the steps of their respective town hall’s on Tuesday afternoon in memory of the victims of the terrorist bomb attacks in Brussels.
Torrevieja Mayor Jose Manuel Dolon, said that “once again terrorism has struck at a major European city and that the pain will be felt equally by the people in Paris, Madrid, London and across the whole continent. It is clear these fanatics are not attacking anyone specifically but their barbarity is against humanity, freedom and democracy, the way of life that allows us Westerners to live in peace and equality. “
He added that “this is already an open war, but citizens are strong. They will resist and overcome. It is a battle that we will win, terrorism has no future. I invite you to mobilise all against this barbarity and these terror attacks.”
