Comment available –civil society must condemn Fraser Anning on NZ tragedy

 

Sydney Peace Foundation (organisers of the Sydney Peace Prize, Australia’s international peace prize) today condemned comments late yesterday by federal Senator Fraser Anning, who appeared to blame Muslim migration for the horrifying terrorist attacked yesterday in Christchurch.

 

Sydney Peace Foundation Director Marianna Brungs said that the Senator’s comments were unacceptable.

 

“Politicians need to be working to bring people together at times like this, not further dividing our society.”
