The document is prohibited to store and distribute in New Zealand.

There is an important distinction between “hate speech,” legal for expression that sensible people can ignore, and this publication, which is written specifically to inspire further killings and terrorism.David ShanksChairman of the Office for the classification of films and literary works

On March 15, gunmen attacked two mosques in the city of Christchurch in New Zealand. They burst inside and staged a shooting – 50 people became victims of the terrorist attack, another 48 people were injured. What happened was called “one of the darkest days in the history of New Zealand.”

One of the attackers published a 37-page manifesto where he explained his actions. He called his idols Anders Breivik and Dylan Ruff (shooter in Charleston), and also called for the murder of Angela Merkel and Recep Erdogan. He expects to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in the future, “just like the terrorist Nelson Mandela.”
