People Gather at Parliament for Moment of Silence

New Zealand Observes Silence in Remembrance of Earthquake Victims


Exactly one week after the devastating earthquake in Christchurch, citizens observed a nation-wide silence today at 12.51 pm.

Many people in Wellington attended the service at Parliament early this afternoon, as Governor- General Sir Anand Satyanand, and Lady Satyanand, Deputy Prime Minister Bill English, religious representatives, and many others, offered prayers and sympathies before observing the two minutes of silence with all attendees.
