A Manifesto for all of the victims

by 

- Ingmar Bergman is among the signer of a petition promoted by various Swedish cinema personages now being distributed at the Semaine: «War actions are also terrorism»

«Every year thousands of women, men, and children are killed during acts of terrorism carried out by individuals, groups, or governments.» As part of the Semaine de la Critique, a group of Swedish cineasts and public figures have signed and distributed a manifesto in which they contest the methods of resolving international conflicts based on military actions. Signers of the petition include Ingmar Bergman, screenplay writer Mikael Bengtsson, journalist and writer Maria Pia Boëthius, director and actor Hans Alfredson, director Lasse Aberg, and many others. The text of the manifesto continues: «On September 11, 2001, 3018 women, men, and children were murdered. During the military actions that followed the 2001 terrorist attacks, more women, men, and children were killed. The figures amount to somewhere between 10,000 and 50,000. No one bothered to count the victims. Now, why should we distinguish between acts of terrorism perpetrated by governments and those perpetrated by others?»
