The Federation of European Publishers condemns the attacks perpetrated in Copenhagen

The Federation of European Publishers wishes to join the Danish Publishers Association and the International Publishers Association in stark condemnation of the vicious attacks perpetrated Saturday in Copenhagen, which, like the appalling killings in Paris last month, constitute an assault on freedom of expression and our core democratic values. European publishers stand firm in upholding these values and in defending the freedom to publish.

Pierre Dutilleul, President of the Federation of European Publishers, said "As yet another repulsive crime has been committed against people exerting and defending their freedom of speech, we, European publishers, confirm our unabated determination to reject and denounce any attack on our fundamental values".
