4:19 am
are also being held in custody is even as prime minister described this as a terrorist attack and none precedented act of violence we new zealand. we were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. we were not true isn't for the sake of violence because we can darn racism because we are in on clay for extremism. we were chosen for the very fact that we are none of these things leaders from muslim majority countries like pakistan indonesia and turkey of all condemn the attack. in turkey thousands took to the streets to protest the killings. the attacks what he called the rise of islamophobia worldwide in western countries to take immediate action and here we are just going live to christ church where the mayor.
4:20 am
is speaking. and. practical support needs to tune into the him as well and then there is the wider community of christ we've all been affected everyone has been touched in some way shape or form and the messages that i've hated. have been a desire to come together as a community and to reach out and offer solidarity to. our community. muslim community part of our community we are a very diverse city and christ we have welcomed new people and. we are talking about people in the city who have lived here for years and years and years they are our friends they are our neighbors we embrace them at this time and
4:21 am
i know that i speak for all of the people in christchurch when i say how much we want to come together to support them so we want to give the communities to ensure we do the. appropriately and and support and give them the time and the space that they need to deal with the immediate issues at hand we still have injured people in the hospital so we will find a time and a place for us to come together. and shear sense of grief and loss but also to shear see it sir. love compassion and support that we feel for these communities. the next thing as people have said that they want to lay floral tributes or other tributes in memory and in respect of those who have died and so we have made available the. garden all along.
4:22 am
the reason we chose that price is because it's close to the hospital very close to the hospital and so there is a direct connection with the people whose lives have been lost and we know that the police still have coordinates on the two mosques and we do want people to stay away from those places we will ensure that there is tributes made available to the community asian appropriate time. the next thing. comes through is a strong desire. to contribute money there are people who offering financial support want to help our church i know it is victim support have set up in a million years help fund for supporting the family members the victims of the terrible attack and the crush foundation which has been recently established
4:23 am
will also sit up a fund because it won't just be for the immediate aftermath of what we have experienced in the city but it will be about rebuilding communities rebuilding what has been lost and ensuring the communities are able to be well supporters and to the future and that will be announced by the crush foundation. and all of the flags flying at half mast on our council. today and. show us. an expression of. support for the communities and the love that have been experienced and many of the weekend soldiers well some of them will be known to you already a cricket. ball between new zealand and. powerful

4:25 am
today. sorry. i'm very shocked that as happened here but i'm shocked that it's happened in new zealand if this had happened in any other city in this country are would be equally shocked and i think the reason we have been targets and this was as i understand it i deliberately. target. our country was because we are a safe such a country and that was the message. in my response to the choice of christchurch. by the. terrorist individual who chooses to. terrorize. it is an act of cowardice that he has performed is something that will.
4:26 am
i guess there are no words to describe the. revulsion that i feel for. the propaganda that he wanted to bring with us and i will not give to that propaganda has was the voice of and the only way that communities can respond to the voice of how it is to come together and love compassion and kindness. i haven't been. concerned at all. obviously arnie been the mayor of christchurch for the last five and a half years in a project that i was a member of parliament for over twenty years and this sort of extremism is not something that we've seen here but he is not from here he came here he came
4:27 am
here with. an until to kill and his mind so he did not. develop his hatred here he came here to perform the sect of terrorism. no i haven't spoken to the mirror need not the small bit on the radio here is an interest on a property. i've spoken to the prime minister i've spoken to. the minister of police spoken to the minister of civil defense so they have reached out i've received messages from all. every mia and the city and a number of me is from around the world have contacted me as well. since of horror and compassion for this girl. who. was one of the all. of the commissioner of police correct statement
4:28 am
that was there were two devices and one cop. in this is. that it is across. the media this morning on the right so just to recap we've been listening for the last few minutes to. the mayor of christchurch delivering some comments to members of the press who were there in that room just to take you through some of her comments she essentially gave a message of solidarity and sympathy she expressed also a sense of grief and sorrow for what has happened as you would expect she described very much a community in shock but a community that is also determined to come together at what is a very difficult time they are determined to come together in strength and unity in
4:29 am
the face of this attack one thing she did say that the now going to have to be a large number of funerals she was saying that. that now has to be organized muslim burials need to be carried out within twenty four hours of death failing that within forty eight hours of death that is the the muslim burial rights so logistically there has to be some organization now because they're all going to be a large number of funerals taking place within a very short space of time the mayor saying that a number of graves need to be dogg. of the suspect the mayor said he is not from here he came here and he came here with hate in his heart so it will continue say across reaction to that story some forty nine worshippers killed in an attack on two mosques in the new zealand city of christchurch
4:30 am
i want to bring you some of the news that we're covering now and elites apart loaded on to mexico's media landscape after oscar nomination for the mexican film roma the twenty five year old who had no previous acting experience was the first indigenous woman to be nominated for best actress but in mexico some people would it killed bringing to light the historic racism and discrimination in people in jena on the way they've traditionally been represented in the media they would muster has more from mexico city jellied so it's you know it was a historic moment. the star of the mexican film roma was nominated for best actress at this year's academy awards it was the first time an indigenous woman was in the running. but despite international recognition not everyone back in mexico celebrated yelitza success. mexico's largest t.v. channel ran a parody of roma many accused the light skinned actress for mocking the elites with
4:31 am
her brown face makeup and a percentage and those women say you know what the other mexican personalities attacked the indigenous actress on social media with racist comments was sort of the cause award winning actor to not shweta says roles for dark skin actors in mexico are limited. well i meant that people like me could only play characters who are messed up who are thieves with the delinquents which is funny because eighty percent of the population is mixed race your skin pigment determines the social status and cultural level the darker your skin the more ignorant you are it's a narrative that's been around for five hundred years. some critics say popular characters like. helped to perpetuate stereotypes about mexico's indigenous population but at the. heart of the patrol of indigenous people is that they are kind of like children who have not developed their abilities who still haven't had
4:32 am
that sets of modern life they're poor very lazy and don't produce anything worthwhile they have become a caricature in the media. but thanks to actors like to note. ordinary mexicans are finally able to see people like themselves represented on screen i will never stop. i was eating tacos at one time and a young guy selling cookies came up to me and said it's you the one in the movies and he hugged me and started crying and told me how awesome it was that someone with dark skin that looked like him could get all the girls and that this gave me a feeling that we can change things. but while diversity in mexican film and television is slowly increasing on the streets far less seems to have changed advertisements seen by millions every day show people who are predominately tall thin and light skinned oh this lack of representation leaves out the majority of mexicans who until recently had little chance of seeing lives like theirs played
