On behalf of the International Society for Cultural-historical and Activity Research (ISCAR), we deplore the violence committed against people at prayer in their holy place, the mosque in Québec City. This isolated action, by a lone student with far-right affiliation, is murderous, terroristic and insupportable. Among the six innocent people who have been killed is a professor from the student’s own university. ISCAR extends its sorrow to the people and families affected and to our friends, colleagues and students at Université Laval. We wish to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community of Québec City and alongside all citizens of every nation and religion in condemning this atrocity.
Malcolm Reed, President of ISCAR
