Green Party offers condolences to families of Orlando shooting victims


The Green Party's thoughts are with the people of Orlando, as we offer our sympathy to the families and friends of those who have been killed and injured in yesterday’s attack.

"We are thinking about the people who have been caught up in this attack, and offer our heartfelt sympathies to those still waiting to hear about loved ones who may have been hurt," said Green Party Global Affairs spokesperson Kennedy Graham.

"Our condolences go out to the families and friends of those who have been killed and have been injured. We stand with LGBTQI communities across the world in calling for love, not hate.

"We are deeply shocked by these events, and we hope that peace is swiftly restored in Orlando," said Dr Graham.
