Antwerp, 10 October 2015: in the framework of the International Day against the Death Penalty a survivor of the attacks at Utoya speaks: how to live after Utoya?

 
versione stampabile

On October 10th in the framework of the International Day against the Death Penalty a meeting was organised with a particular international guest: Bjorn Magnus Jacobsen Ihler. On the 22nd of July, 2011, only just 20 years old, he was on the island of Utoya when Anders Breivik killed 69 youngsters, wounding 110 others. He gave a testimony about how this had a decisive influence on his life. He opposes the death penalty in every situation, even after what happened to him and his friends. He insists to be called a survivor, not a victim:

“I don’t know if Breivik is capable of remorse and I don’t honestly care. People find it odd that I consider him so unimportant but I prefer to try to stop people harming others now than to think about what Breivik did in the past. I was given the gift of life and if I can spend my time making sure that one single person does not have to go through what my friends and I went through then this work will be worth it.”

The evening was attended by over 200 people and was an initiative of two organisations opposing the death penalty: Sant’Egidio and Within-without-Walls, with the support of several other organisations, such as Amnesty International.
