Statement from Jacinda Ardern on Christchurch shootings

Published: Fri 15 Mar 2019 04:47 PM
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has expressed her horror at the events that are currently unfolding in Christchurch.
“This was an act of extraordinary and unprecedented violence. It has no place in New Zealand.
“It is one of New Zealand’s darkest days.
“Many of the people affected by this act of extreme violence will be from our refugee and migrant communities.
“New Zealand is their home. They are us.
“The person or people who carried out this act of unprecedented violence are not.
“There is no place in our home for them.
“My thoughts, and I know all New Zealanders’ thoughts, are with those affected and with the people of Christchurch.
“To those who are in lockdown and separated from their families, stay safe and stay inside, follow instructions and be assured the police are actively managing the situation.”
