Dave CullThe Dunedin City Council this afternoon confirmed a civic vigil, organised by the council and Amnesty Otago, would be held in the Octagon on Thursday, starting at 7pm. Mr Cull said the city was "grieving and in shock'', and the vigil would be "an important way to support our Muslim community and the broader community''. He urged people to join the vigil to show "solidarity and support, and to demonstrate the resilience and love of the Dunedin community''. "It's been heart-wrenching to see Dunedin residents express their support in a range of ways over the weekend, from gatherings to small acts of kindness. Meanwhile, a community vigil was also planned in Mosgiel tonight.
