Ardern Says Racism and Extremism 'Not Welcome Here' in Christchurch Remembrance Address

Crowd members applauded New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern’s speech at the National Remembrance Service held in Christchurch, on March 29, to honour victims of the March 15 mosque shootings.

“Racism exists but it is not welcome here.

An assault on the freedom of anyone who practices their faith or religion is not welcome here.

Violence and extremism in all its forms is not welcome here,” Ardern says in this video filmed by crowd member Michelle Baillie.

Around 20,000 people attended the service including survivors of the attacks, political leaders, international dignatories and members of the Muslim community, the Christchurch City Council said in a statement.

British singer Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, also performed his song Peace Train at the event.
