Vigil and protest for Christchurch victims

News Corp UK, London. Mon 18 Mar 2019



 People meet up in front of the News Corp building, the UK HQ of Murdoch's newspapers including The Sun and The Times

 '#TurnToLove' and some Maori slogans
     
 'Mulsim Kiwi Kids Lives Matter' and 'Stop the Violence Agains our Muslim Brothers & Sisters'

 

 People line up to pose for a photo

 'Stand Up Against Racism'

 Some one had brought a black white and red Maori flag

 

 'Love triu7mphs over HATE!'

 'We Are One'

 'Today we mourn - Tomorrow we Organise - End Racism Now'

 'Solidarity withy Aotearoa - Smash Global White Supremacist Terrorism'

 'Women of Colour in the Global Women's Strike' outside News Corp

 'White Supremacy is the Enemy'

 

 The organisers introduce the event

 

 

 

 We begin with a Muslim prayer in Arabic, which was explained in English

 

 

 

 People stand in prayer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 There were several speakers

 

 And the names of the victims were read, with some coming forward to speak about some of the dead

 and candles were lit for them

 

 

 

 The crowd had grown

 as the reading of the names continued

 and there was a large deep circle filling the space in front of the News Corp offices
