The trial of the 2015 terrorist attacks, which opened this week in Paris, is also a trial on their behalf.

For the 130 dead who fell under fire from the jihadists, for the hundreds of injured and all the victims.

1,800 civil parties are represented by 300 lawyers. Justice will come to name, explain and may be repaired.


But outside the court what support for the victims?

In the UK, helping adolescents

Most of the victims were only adolescents, young minors under the age of 16.

In 2017 the series of terrorist attacks targeting England also hit the city of Manchester where an Ariana Grande concert is being held.

In Norway, the political taboo

This summer, Norway commemorated ten years of the attacks of July 22, 2011. On that day, Anders behring Breivik, a far-right fanatic now behind bars for at least 20 years, detonated a bomb in front of the headquarters of the government, killing 8 people.

Then, he went to the island of Utoya, where the Summer School of the Young Labor movement was held.

For more than an hour, he fired on the young people, killing 69 people and injuring dozens.

In Norway the trauma is enormous.

But ten years later, young Labor today say they have been abandoned, and not helped as they should have been,
