Pakuranga MP Simeon Brown is imploring people to join him in a few minutes silence at 6 am on ANZAC day morning.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to New Zealand, including the unfortunate cancellation of ANZAC Day services, but this won’t stop Kiwis showing their appreciation for our fallen and returned service members, says Brown.

“Due to the restrictions on large events and gatherings, ANZAC services across the country are sadly having to be cancelled in order to put the health and safety of New Zealanders first.”

Pakuranga MP Simeon Brown is asking locals to rise at 6:00am on Saturday 25 April

“The Covid-19 pandemic is a challenging time for us all, but nothing will stop us from showing our gratitude in other ways on ANZAC Day.”

“I am calling on everyone in the Pakuranga electorate to instead join in with the Stand at Dawn movement, which asks Kiwis to rise at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April and stand for a few minutes silence at the end of our driveways to show our respect.”

“This will be a small yet powerful way to honour those who have served our country and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.”

“Covid-19 presents an immense challenge for current generations to deal with both now and far into the future, but still pales in comparison to what our ANZACs faced on our behalf.”

“I know that, as always rain or shine, Kiwis will Stand at Dawn to say thank you to our ANZACs.”
