ORGANISERS of the ‘Enough Is Enough’ rally against violence in Wangaratta this Sunday have been flooded with feedback since announcing the event last week.
One of the organisers, Tania Maxwell, told the Times/Observer the response had been “huge”.
“So many people commented either on Facebook or by ringing or texting me, from around here as well as from Melbourne,” she said.
“Many have said they would like this to be an annual event so we can keep trying to make this a safer country.”
Support has come from many quarters, including Wangaratta council, Cathy McGowan (MHR, Indi), who has provided a statement to be read out at the rally as she will be attending a youth politics camp at Howman’s Gap that weekend, and of course those who have already indicated they will attend including Bruce and Denise Morcombe (parents of Daniel Morcombe), Derryn Hinch and Liberal candidate for Indi, Sophie Mirabella, who will also speak at the rally.
The rally calls for harsher sentences for violent or sexual crimes and further parole reform with mandatory intensive supervision. 4 Corrected 5 Table-shaped
