Flags at half-mast for free and safe education

News - 02 November 2020 - Communication

On Monday 2 November, French schools will commemorate the attack on Samuel Paty and with that the attack on free and safe education. That is why the flags on Dutch university buildings, including those of TU Delft, will also be flying at half-mast. Pieter Duisenberg, President of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands: “The horrific murder of Samuel Paty unfortunately shows once again that we must continue to stress the importance of freedom of speech. This is a great good, certainly in education, for which we must all stand firm. Teachers worldwide must be able to do their job without fear or pressure.”
