A march in Auckland against anti-Asian hate has drawn the community together in outrage against racism.
Saturday's protest at Aotea Square comes amidst warnings racism is rising and needs to be stopped.
"On behalf of Asians in New Zealand, we are deeply hurt, traumatised, and outraged by the recent Atlanta shootings on top of the 1900 percent rise in Anti-Asian hate crimes 2020 in the USA alone," the Facebook event page states.
It adds there have been "many awful instances of racist-fuelled hate during the COVID-19 pandemic here in New Zealand".
"We actually see these brutal attacks happening to New Zealanders, and everyday racism as well is what contributes to these extreme events happening," organiser Steph Tan told The AM Show on Friday.
"It's to educate and show how the shootings, how the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes are not isolated in just America.
"It happens in all Western societies, and certainly New Zealand."
