You will fail

“I want to say one thing, specifically to the world today.

This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty and the powerful. It was not aimed at presidents or prime ministers. It was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners, black and white, Muslim and Christian, Hindu and Jew, young and old. Indiscriminate attempt at slaughter irrespective of any consideration for age, class, religion, whatever. That isn’t an ideology. It isn’t even a perverted faith. It is just an indiscriminate attempt at mass murder.

And we know what the objective is: they seek to divide Londoners, they seek to turn Londoners against each other. I said yesterday to the International Olympic Commitee, this city of London is the greatest in the world because everybody lives side by side in harmony. And Londoners will not be divided by this cowardly attack. They will stand together in solidarity alongside those who have been injured and those who have been bereaved and that is why I’m proud to be the Mayor of this city.

Finally, I wish to speak through you directly, to those who came to London to claim lives, I know that you personally do not fear giving up your own life in exchange to taking others, that is why you are so dangerous. But I know you fear that you may fail in your long-term objective to destroy our free society, and I can show you why you will fail. In the days that follow, look at our airports, look at our seaports and look at our railway stations and, even after your cowardly attack, you will see that people from the rest of Britain, people from around the world will arrive in London to become Londoners and to fulfil their dreams and achieve their potential.

They choose to come to London, as so many have come before because they come to be free. They come to live the life they choose, they come to be able to be themselves. They flee you because you tell them how they should live. They don’t want that and nothing you do, however many of us you kill, will stop that flight to our city where freedom is strong and where people can live in harmony with one another. Whatever you do, however many you kill, you will fail.”

Ken Livingstone, prefeito de Londres.
