The Muslims at the masjid at Christchurch were not the victims of a single shooter but the drip fed hate being peddled by Islamophobes.

They are responsible for this, that includes not just those who now openly profess their hatred of Islam and Muslims, the media that gives them the space, the daily misleading news headlines, and those in a position of responsibility who sit on their hands refusing to legally recognise this hatred as a form of racism.

Other legally recognised forms of racism are not tolerated in the sphere of politics and media, nor should this.

We the undersigned request that parliament not only discusses this but legally recognises Islamophobia as a form of racism.
