Anzac Day: Stand at Dawn
Anzac Day is one of the most important national occasions for both Australians and New Zealanders.
In 2020, for the first time in history, Anzac Day Services across New Zealand have been cancelled due to Covid-19.
Even though public Anzac services are unable to go ahead, it does not mean that the tradition of remembering and commemorating our veterans and service personnel should be cancelled too.
The RNZRSA and NZDF have been working together along with other government agencies to provide an alternative way to commemorate Anzac Day while still staying safe in their bubbles.
Stand at Dawn invites New Zealanders on Saturday April 25, 6am, to stand at their letterbox, at the front door, lounge rooms, balconies, driveway or wherever they are in the world, and take a moment to remember the fallen.
An Anzac Day service will be broadcast on Radio NZ National starting a 6am.
