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
