Hobart Vigil for Christchurch Terrorist Attack

There will be a vigil in support of those affected by yesterday’s Christchurch terrorist attack.  The vigil will be held tomorrow evening, Sunday 17 March at 6.00pm in Franklin Square, Hobart. 

The City of Hobart is working with the Multicultural Council of Tasmania, Hobart Mosque, Tasmanian University Muslim Society and Tasmanian University Pakistan Society, to organise the event.  Religions for Peace Tasmania Branch will be participating.

Messages of condolence and solidarity have been sent by Religions for Peace internationally, nationally and locally to Muslim communities. 

The website for the Parliament of the World’s Religions states:

The Parliament of the World’s Religions condemns this attack against peoples of faith, the growing Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy sentiments that are spreading throughout the world. The Parliament is committed to combating hate and violence in our communities and stand firmly committed to interfaith cooperation, engagement, and understanding.

Our deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers to the victims and their families of this horrific attack.

We invite friends and colleagues in the interfaith movement and all peoples everywhere to commit to actions of peace, love, and understanding as antidotes to all acts of hatred and violence.

If you have any queries, please contact Terry on 0438 069 728.
Hoping to see you there!

In peace,
