Over 100 people from Perth and beyond attended a vigil for trust, understanding and peace held in the city last Friday. The event was organised as a reaction to the recent atrocities in Christchurch, New Zealand. Along with guest speakers from the Muslim, Christian and Hindu religions, Ereti Mitchell of New Zealand Society Scotland said a few words:
'It is just so shocking that this has happened in New Zealand. It is very sad. I was in Christchurch for Christmas and New Year and for this to happen – I just can’t believe it.'
The Perth Peace Vigil was co-organised by Active Citizen Perth, part of a grassroots organisation with the intent of fostering relationships and understanding between local communities and the rest of the World. You can read more about them here.
