Together we grieve, together we respond to end racism (Advocate 26 01)

On 15 March 2019 at 1.32pm New Zealand changed forever. The murder of fifty people at mosques in Christchurch stunned us all.
In the days that followed, the tragedy has brought New Zealanders together in our tens of thousands to mourn, to express our horror, and to try to make sense of the world.
It has mobilised our members to provide aroha and support to those affected by the racist attacks in Christchurch. We have sought to meet with our Muslim members and their families kanohi ki te kanohi, though respecting that this must happen when they are ready to share their time with us. More...

After Christchurch: Standing up to racism (Advocate 26 01)

After the horrific Christchurch mosque shootings, there have been heartening displays of solidarity with Muslim communities. Four thousand people, Muslims and non-Muslims, came together at the Stand Together Against Racism rally in Melbourne the day after the tragedy to say that there is no place for racist hate in our society. It shouldn’t take tragedies such as this to notice how entrenched racism and Islamophobia have become in Australia. The horrific violence was a product of decades of vitriolic Islamophobia and anti-immigrant racism, currently led by the Coalition Government in Australia. More...

NTEU statement regarding Christchurch tragedy

NTEU sends its deepest sympathies to all New Zealanders, to those New Zealanders who are Muslim, and our most heartfelt sympathy to those who lost family. 
There is no hiding from Australia’s role in this tragedy. We must own it. It comes after more than a decade of race baiting and hatred from elements among those in political office, self-aggrandising commentators and media proprietors.
If this tragedy had happened in Australia our Prime Minister would not have honestly been able to say: "You may have chosen us, but we utterly reject and condemn you" because he and other politicians in this country have set in train and encouraged the development of hatred by using Muslim immigration as a political tool.
We must all reject the politics of fear and hatred, whether direct or dog whistled, that provides an environment where extremism flourishes.
Our deepest sympathies to the families of those who lost their lives, and to their communities.  And to Australians who are Muslims we stand with you and commit to playing a role in fighting Islamophobia. More...
