Words by Nadia Chapman

Hundreds of Moreton Bay locals from far and wide took to Redcliffe streets on Friday, May 31 to peacefully rally against domestic violence.

The Moreton Bay Says No to Violence campaign had another successful turnout for its 16th year, which was held a couple of months earlier than usual. 

Encircle Redcliffe’s Acting CEO Robyn Rose says the decision to move the march forward was so it could align with Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month better.

“Encircle has held a candle lighting ceremony at our three Neighbourhood Centres at Redcliffe, Kallangur and Lawnton at the beginning of May for several years,” she says.

The ceremony was held on May 1 this year, remembering those killed during the past year due to domestic violence.

“By moving the Moreton Bay Says No To Violence march to May, we mark both the start and end of the month which will hopefully increase awareness around this important topic," Robyn explains.
