The document contains few or no spelling mistakes, few grammatical errors and mostly restrains from racist abuse despite its supremacist message. But it is repetitive and in some sections sound deranged.

Tarrant anticipates that the world will want to understand his beliefs and influences. Using questions addressed to himself, such as “why did you carry out the attack?” and “what do you want?”, he describes a plan to trigger a violent counter-reaction that will lead to a clash between Islam and the West.

“To directly reduce immigration rates to European lands by intimidating and physically removing the invaders themselves,” he writes.

“To agitate the political enemies of my people into action, to cause them to overextend their own hand and experience the eventual and inevitable backlash as a result.

Tarrant’s manifesto … “Striking quickly and then exfiltrating from the area of the attack was the plan, to avoid the responders of the state and to avoid a situation where I was forced to harm them.” Mark Stehle

“To incite violence, retaliation and further divide between the European people and the invaders currently occupying European soil.”

One of the primary justifications cited for the attack is an 11-year Swedish girl named Ebba Akerland, who was one of four people killed in Stockholm in 2017 by an Uzbeki man, Rakhmat Akilov, in a truck.

He describes the young girl walking home from school and being “murdered by an Islamic attacker”.

“Ebba [sic] death at the hands of the invaders, the indignity of her violent demise and my inability to stop it broke through my own jaded cynicism like a sledgehammer,” he writes.

“I could no longer ignore the attacks. They were attacks on my people, attacks on my culture, attacks on my faith and attacks on my soul. They would not be ignored.”

Tarrant mentions that he successfully invested in a cryptocurrency and used the money to travel. In France, he writes of finding cities where the “invaders” outnumber the French, and crying at a military graveyard because he felt the soldiers’ deaths were in vain because of immigration.


“The spell broke, why don’t I do something? Why not me? If not me, the who?”

He says the Christchurch attack was planned for two years, and the locations were identified three months ago. New Zealand was originally not his intended target, he writes, and he planned to live and train in the country temporarily.

He wanted to survive, he writes, to promote his beliefs through the media but regarded death as a “definite possibility”. He hoped to avoid getting into a gunfight with the police, whom he expresses respect for, unless the police officers are non-white.

“Striking quickly and then exfiltrating from the area of the attack was the plan, to avoid the responders of the state and to avoid a situation where I was forced to harm them,” he writes.

“In the event of an engagement I had the somewhat quixotic notion of shouting down responding state enforcers, intimidating them into dropping their weapons, and if that failed, only targeting non-vital areas of their body such as the anterior of the thigh, shoulder or a side-on through short of the calf, hamstring or gluteal muscles so as to cause the least amount of harm as possible and to allow for a quick recovery.

“How this worked in reality, well … only you know.”

Asking himself if he supports Donald Trump, Tarrant expresses admiration for the US President as a symbol of “white identity”. But “as a policy maker and leader? Dear god no.”

Tarrant cites his greatest influence as Candace Owens, a black American conservative who backs Trump and criticises the Black Lives Matter movement.
