Ribbons have been tied to the fence of the Catholic Cathedral in downtown Auckland by attendees and witnesses from the Royal Commission into Abuse.
Survivors and supporters walked the short distance from the Rydges Hotel, where the Royal Commission into abuse in state and faith-based care was holding the final day of its first public hearing.
Ribbons were said to be tied in support of the nameless victims still suffering from the effects of abuse.
Cathedral Dean, Father Peter Tipene also tied a ribbon to the fence. He said it was in support of the victims.
