The Coalition Against Global Genocide stands with ethical and compassionate people against the murders in New Zealand on Friday, March 15th.
The latest violent attacks at Al Noor and Linwood Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand remind us painfully of the hate perpetrated at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek Wisconsin, at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina and at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CoAGG says in our mission statement that we “motivate and empower communities to oppose crimes against humanity”. Legal sources define Crimes Against Humanity as murder or persecution on political, racial and religious grounds.
We encourage all our friends and coalition members to speak out against hate and reach out to our Muslim neighbors with words of love and respect. We will resist through solidarity. We will create our collective safety through love and tolerance for all people.
Please don’t let this attack be labeled just another act of violence in a violent world. This is our world and we believe in peace. We will keep motivating all to be empowered to strive toward peace for all people.
Signed with respect,
Board Members of the Coalition Against Global Genocide
