Christchurch Rally in Dunedin

A national two-minutes' silence at 12.51pm today would be marked in the Octagon, remembering those affected by the Christchurch earthquake, Mr Cull (Mayor of Dunedin) told yesterday's meeting.
The Octagon event would begin at 12.15pm, with a string quartet from the Southern Sinfonia performing, followed by the singing of the national anthem at 12.40pm, an address by Mr Cull and the two minutes' silence.
The City of Dunedin Choir and the Dunedin RSA Choir would then lead the crowd in a rendition of You'll Never Walk Alone.
Mr Cull said he hoped to fill the Octagon, and urged as many people as possible to wear red and black clothing to show their support for Christchurch.
