Christchurch seeks solidarity, hope a week after attacks

From Morning Report, 7:30 am on 22 March 2019

Christchurch people are hoping to find solidarity, hope and love when they today mark a week since the deadly mosque attacks in their city.
On Friday there will be two minutes of silence that will be observed nation-wide after the government broadcasts the Muslim call to prayer at Hagley Park and on RNZ and other stations at 1:30pm. School children are planning to dress in bright colours to show their support and some women intend to wear head-scarves. A week on from the atrocities at the Linwood and Al Noor mosques, RNZ reporter Robin Martin has been out speaking to people in Christchurch.
