The Shooting by one man at the two mosques in Christchurch five years ago killed 51 victims, and left behind 34 spouses, 92 children, and more than 100 siblings. Shock rippled through the Islamic community, the people of Christchurch and people all around Aotearoa, and the world. We must always stand by people who have suffered for their faith. Today wear a blue ribbon to show you are in solidarity with our Muslim community who wish to live here in peace. Blue ribbons in A14.
