March against violence
March against violence

Men, women and children of Kalgoorlie-Boulder took a stand against domestic violence on Friday.

About 200 people, including police officers and firefighters, marched down Hannan Street to raise funds for the White Ribbon Foundation.

The march ended with a barbecue at St Barbara’s Square, where Wania Taeipa shared his experiences and spoke out about a problem that continues to worsen in Western Australia.

Mr Taeipa, who led a motorbike ride against domestic violence on Thursday, said the march was a great success.

“Myself and another guy were marching down Hannan Street and selling white ribbons on the way,” he said. “People were coming out of the shops, asking what it was all about and donating money.

“They were just saying, ‘yeah, this is a good cause’.”
