Apr 27, 2015 | Global

On 2 April a terrorist attack was carried out at Garissa University College in Kenya when 147 people were killed and 79 injured. To honour the victims and as a protest against the attack MDH, and many other universities around the globe, will have a joint minute of silence on Monday 27 April at 12.00.

It is the European University Association, EUA, that has proposed that Europe’s higher education institutions, HEIs, have a joint minute of silence on Monday 27 April at 12.00.

- By honouring the victims and demonstrating our resistance to terrorism and violence, we are also highlighting the basic values that MDH, together with all the other HEIs around the world, stand up for – academic freedom and freedom of expression, says Karin Röding, Vice-Chancellor of MDH.

For you who want to and are able to participate in the minute of silence, you do it on the location that you are at the moment.

The minute of silence will be observed on Monday 27 April at 12.00.
