Anti-violence sign wrecked
‘Brainless’ act of aggression won’t stop Zonta’s fight
THE irony of an antiviolence group being the target of vandals is not lost on Zonta Club of Roma members.
For the second time in two years, they had to pick up the pieces after an act of vandalism on Friday night.
Signs, including a banner, and coloured wooden figurines – part of their 16 days of action – were knocked to the ground and some were destroyed in what is believed to be a drunken act.
Member Christina Waldron said the club was taking it seriously and police had been notified.
“This proves our point – that violence is mindless and that we as a community really need to be doing more,” she said.
The figurines, in groups of four, had one woman in orange and the other three in white to showcase the alarming rate of domestic violence.
During the attack, arms were pulled off some figurines and almost all were knocked to the ground.
“We want to show that we will not stand by and let this kind of brainless violence continue,” Ms Waldron said.
NO MORE: Zonta members aren’t giving up their cause after the group’s signs and figurines were vandalised.
