Two minutes silence tomorrow

Tomorrow, one week after the terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand will observe two minutes silence to remember those we lost. It’s two minutes, rather than the customary one minute, in recognition of the seriousness of this horrific event. At 1:30pm NZST, the major free-to-air TV channels and radio stations will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer. Then, at 1:32, the two minutes silence begins.

If anyone overseas would like to join us, here’s the exact time in some world time zones:
  • Auckland: 1:30pm Friday, March 22
  • Sydney: 11:30am Friday, March 22
  • London: 12:30am Friday, March 22
  • New York: 8:30pm, Thursday, March 21
  • Chicago: 7:30pm, Thursday, March 21
  • Los Angeles: 5:30pm, Thursday, March 21
  • Honolulu: 2:30pm, Thursday, March 21
If you participate, it would be nice if you could share that on social media to show worldwide solidarity. But only if you feel comfortable doing so.
