Vigil for refugees, 2015

Vigil for Refugees 1

A cold, wet night on September 10, 2015, was not enough to deter 50 to 60 Palmerston North people from attending a vigil for the refugees from the endless wars in the Middle East — and from the many-sided conflict in Syria, in particular. The vigil, which saw many participants holding flickering candles as well as placards, was held outside the Ding Xin travel and immigration agency in central George Street. It was scheduled to last for two hours. Click here for the press coverage.
