Developing story, but it appears at least 20 shots fired, and at least several seriously injured.

 

I'm shocked and appalled.  Please FFS - not this in NZ.

Through actions we should show that intolerance is not to be tolerated. We should support those who were harmed. We should denounce the actions of extremists, regardless of faith. Humans belong to one single race.

KrazyKid:

 

Just found that Video.

 

Shocking.

 

This is so terrible and so sad.

 

This needs to be posted on every page:

 

Don't give them legitimacy;

 

Don't share the Manifesto;

 

Don't give their videos views; 

 

This is how they spread their ideology. Don't be part of it.

I am NOT officially empowered to talk about this but I want to shut down any conjecture right now.

 

No actions of Spark taken now or over the next 24 hours or so should be considered representative of policy. They may turn out to be temporary, they may even with hindsight not be considered the best move. However the number of direct links going around to certain sites and threads where some truly horrific and almost certainly illegal material was being hosted met a threshold for immediate and extraordinary action. We're killing the DNS entries for a couple of sites.

 

I should note that this had approval from the highest levels, and we're not the only ISP doing this.

 

Right now is where we all get a chance to demonstrate our humanity in the face of a terrible tragedy. Reach out and help people. I know many people in Chch and around the country that are in shock. I know I am - and I know there are hundreds or thousands of people that are directly massively impacted by this today.

 

At some point in the near future we'll evaluate what to roll back. But not today.

 

Cheers - Neil Gardner

There are a couple of fundraising pages that you should consider when donating to help Christchurch victims.

 

United for Christchurch Mosque Shootings - currently at $ 740,000 of a $ 800,000 goal

 

Victim Support Official Page: Christchurch Shooting Victims' Fund - currently at $ 665,000 of an open goal

 

These numbers are at the time of this post.
