Pacific Media Centre’s Del Abcede was on the ground for last Sunday’s “love not hate” rally with about 2000 people marching down Auckland’s Queen Street in solidarity with the victims and survivors of the Christchurch mosque terrorist attack earlier this month.
Scores of children were among the marchers with placards declaring “Stand up to Islamophobia”, “Peace, love”, “Denying racism is racism”, “Dismantle white supremacy” and “Migrants are welcome, fascists are not”.
Fifty worshippers were killed by a lone gunman with assault weapons in an attack on two mosques in Christchurch on March 15. New Zealand has now banned assault and semi-automatic weapons.
