This is a huge shock to wake up to.. would never have expected this in NZ.

Shooting at two mosques in Christchurch ,New Zealand. Over 40 dead.

There has been a lot of racial tension in New Zealand for many years much the same as parts of Australia, while laws have changed in recent times, attitudes haven't. There aren't many multicultural societies in the world where there aren't associated tensions. Rapid rises in any specific ethnicity often trigger things off. Immigration and discrimination against Muslims is relatively new but there has been plenty of practice against Asians and Maoris.

Up to 1987 the immigration policy was based on country of origin which I think was end of the last official racial discrimination.

We tend to only see the advertising trying to attract the skilled immigrants they want, as with other countries there are always darker sides as well.

Terrible thing to happen and to live stream it as well.. Was getting annoyed at BBC 5 live presenters interviewing so called experts in far right extremism trying hard to get a connection with the right wing in this country. Interestingly though the only group that got mentioned by name was not BNP, EDL or Britain First but actually the Conservatives. LOL. Commentators were saying that extreme right wing white supremacy action (which thankfully is not too common) just fuels the Islamic terrorism and vice versa. Whilst i would agree a little with that i cant help think its more are countries meddling in Islamic countries bombing and killing the guilty and the innocent.

Interested to know why the NZ government are dishing out 14 years in prison for sharing the video &/or the manifesto, 10 years for possesing it & a $400,000 fine to any isp that allows it to be distributed.
Youtube have apparently blocked searches relating to it from their site & various other sites were on lockdown.
Why the big coverup?
Don't come out with "It spreads hatred" or "it's bad for the families", so was 9/11.

Just wondering why we have our much depleted police force patrolling Mosques here, it would be fair to say that Churches here are at the same level of a terrorist threat if any retaliation were to take place, and based on past History the threat is more likely to come from the Muslim enclave.

The Synagogues also have police protection. Basically, it could be seen the ME problems aka Jewish and Muslim issues are about raise their profile here too.
