Roughly 200 people took to the streets of Redcliffe on Friday morning to send a clear message they don’t support violence happening in and around the Moreton Bay Region.
A number of police officers, representatives from Encircle Neighbourhood Centre, members of Zonta Redcliffe, students from local schools and general members of the public stepped off from Rotary Park at 9am and made their way down Redcliffe Parade to the Settlement Cove Ampitheatre as part of this year’s Moreton Bay Says No to Violence March.
Lisa Boyd, who is the Counselling and Families Manager at Encircle, said she was pleased with the turnout.
“For us, the importance of the march is to raise awareness and show a united front that we as a community say no to violence,” Lisa said.
“The march is a way of giving people a visual understanding, plus a safe space where everyone can raise their voice about the issue.
“It’s important to include all age groups in this discussion, right from young kids right up to the older generation.
“That’s why we love having the schools take part. There were five local schools who showed their support.”
