A Message of Condolences

The Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) offers its deepest sympathies and condolences to the families and friends of the victims who lost their lives during the recent hostage crisis in Martin Place. Our thoughts are also with all of those affected by this horrific act of violence.

We are all shocked and saddened by this terrible and tragic event and support the religious and community leaders’ calls for peace, calm and unity.

The rich diversity of our society is one of our greatest strengths. Recent community initiatives including the numerous interfaith prayer services held around the country and social media campaigns affirm that Australians are very resilient, respectful and generous.

In these challenging times, we urge the community to remain united and to stand together. It is our community’s support for one another that will ensure a peaceful and prosperous Australia.
