first_imgA vigil for the fifty Muslims killed in Christchurch, New Zealand brought together over 200 people in Oxford on Friday afternoon. Attendees were asked to bring individual flowers, which werelaid one-by-one below the flagpole. After a few days the flowers will be castinto the Thames, as per New Zealand tradition. The service was held to honour those killed when a white supremacistattacked two mosques in the city of Christchurch. New Zealand’s flag was flown at half-mast as students, staff, academics and local residents gathered in Christ Church college’s Peckwater Quad to sing the country’s national anthem. A statement by the organisers read: “Christchurch is a citythat has already suffered so much, but the people have proved time and againthat strength and resilience come through unity. Dr. Sheikh Ramzy of the Oxford Islamic Information Centre saidthat the attack had “backfired” by uniting New Zealanders of all faiths andcalled for Muslims and non-Muslims to ensure that future attacks continue tobackfire. The historic college, after which Christchurch was named, was chosen in order to symbolise the historic links between Oxford and New Zealand. Prayers were read out for the victims, their families and forMuslim communities worldwide. “In the wake of these horrific attacks on the mosques in Christchurch, it is more important now than ever, to stand together in unity and show that actions born of hate, intolerance and bigotry will fail to incite violence.”last_img read more
