CALL FOR A MOMENT OF SILENCE TO HONOR THOSE LOST IN THE 1972 MUNICH OLYMPIC ATTACKS
Forty years ago terrorists shocked the world by murdering eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. The International Olympics Committee (IOC) has a moral responsibility to keep remembrance alive as we approach this tragic anniversary, but has refused to take action.
Join Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer, Congressmember Jerrold Nadler, Congressmember Nita Lowey, Congressmember Eliot L. Engel, and Congressmember Steve Israel in calling on the IOC to honor these innocent victims with a moment of silence during the opening or closing ceremonies of this summer’s Olympic Games. Your signature will be delivered to the IOC as part of this growing effort to finally honor those who lost their lives 40 years ago.
