A man claiming to have been born in Australia has issued a 74-page “manifesto” saying he carried out the fatal shootings at Christchurch mosques to avenge the deaths of thousands in Europe.
The man had prepared his manifesto titled “The Great Replacement” and posted it on a message board website.
He describes himself as “Just an ordinary White man, 28 years old. Born in Australia to a working class, low income family.”
He said he had a regular childhood but had little interest in education and has recently worked as a “kebab removalist”.
Under a heading “Why did you carry out the attack?” he says it was to avenge “thousands of deaths caused by foreign invaders.”
“To most of all show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands, our homelands are our own and that, as long as a white man still lives, they will NEVER conquer our lands and they will never replace our people,” he writes.
