OECS Expresses ‘Shared Grief’ After New Zealand ‘ Horrific Massacre’

Press Release:-  The Authority, the Heads of Government of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States meeting in a special session in Guadeloupe on the 14th and 15th March has expressed shared grief at the horrific massacre of innocent worshippers in New Zealand.

Chairman of the Authority Prime Minister Gonsalves expressed strong solidarity with the families of the victims, The Government and people of New Zealand in this darkest of days.

The Chairman said the shooter deliberately targeted a place of sanctity and spiritual comfort for the Muslim community and reports that women and children were among the dead filled all our hearts with a deep sorrow.

We abhor any form of violence and act of terror against any race, ethnicity, religion or creed and we are unanimous in our resolve that no act of terror will ever change the values of free nations.

New Zealand has been a staunch development partner and close friend of the Caribbean and we will be there for you today, tomorrow and for all the days to come.

As New Zealand comes to terms with their pain let us be comforted that this great nation will continue to be defined by the love of all of its people which will prevail over the hate with which these innocent lives were taken.

May God continue to bless New Zealand.
