Wellington cab drivers to pay tribute to Christchurch victims, on Friday 23 at Wellington Airport. A special vigil has been arranged at the Wellington Airport organised by Multicultural New Zealand and Wellington Airport.
DATE: Friday 23 March 2019
VENUE: Wellington Airport pre-chartered taxi pen
TIME: 10:45am – 11:15 midday
CONTACT INFO: Raveen Annamalai 0211961967
2 minutes’ silence will be observed to pay respect to the lives lost followed by some words from guests attending.
The vigil will take place at the pre-chartered pen which is located just to the south of the main terminal building (see image below). Those who would like to attend should use the airport parking facilities for their vehicles and walk to the pre-chartered pen as we expect a number of people this space will be reserved for standing room only and not vehicles at this time.
Free parking will be provided at the car park behind the Hertz building (the barriers will be raised at 10.00am until midday) – this is limited to approximately 150 spaces.
To access this car park please proceed out the exit gates at the South end and instead of turning toward the taxi pen carry on South for approximately 20 metres and on the right you will find the entrance to this car park.
The event will start at 1045 this Friday the 22nd March. 2 minutes silence will be observed followed by some words from guests attending which include Mayor Justin Lester, Mr Sultan (NZ Islamic Federation), Mr Pancha Narayanan (Multicultural NZ), Mr Paul Eagle (MP of Rongotai) and Ms Lorreeta (NZ Police Wellington).
