SAD FREMANTLE REMINDER OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized, violence, women by freoview on December 11, 2017

 

 

There is a very important reminder in front of the Fremantle Shipwrecks Museum about the unacceptable high numbers of domestic violence in Australia, so go and check it out and spread the word through social media!

Although just about everyone should understand that domestic violence, mainly against women, is not acceptable, the statistics show the numbers have actually increased in Australia in recent years. We need to put a stop to that!

50,000 incidents of family and domestic violence were reported last year in WA. That is outrageous!

If you observe domestic violence report it, because the victims are often too frightened to do it themselves.

CANTONMENT HILL PLAYGROUND

Stage one of the Cantonment Hill Project is nearly finished, with workers doing the final landscaping.

The City of Fremantle will officially open the playground Thursday week, October 12, so make sure to take your children there in ten days.

It looks pretty good and I assume some shade structures and seating will be added to finish it all.

COLOURFUL FREO RAINBOW YES RALLY

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

yes

 

 

What a delightful Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY YES! rally it was late this afternoon with many hundreds of people turning up.

There were a lot of families, some dogs, and all the colours of the rainbow.

The rally was organised by Labor federal MP Josh Wilson and supported by Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt.

My personal highlight was to see the Mayor’s oh so cute little baby daughter Aiofe at her first political rally with mum Emma.

FREO MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

Marriage equality Aug 25

 

The Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY Rally is on at 5 pm today under the Rainbow container artwork, so come along if you want to support love.

It is a shame that what should be a minor issue has blown out of proportion. What’s the big deal of allowing same sex people to also express their commitment to each other?

It really does not affect anyone but them, as thousands of gays and lesbians already live together, bringing up children and making a contribution to our communities.

Love is a beautiful and positive thing and we should all support that.

Many churches around Australia have been expressing support for it, and those who don’t support it will not be forced to hold same sex marriage ceremonies.

The event is just opposite Cantonment Hill, so parking could be an issue. Best to come by bike or on foot, or park at the East Street jetty or near the Leftbank pub.

It should be a good feel, positive event about love, so come along!

YES! RAINBOW FLAG AT FREO TOWNHALL

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 23, 2017

 

rainbow flag

 

There is a big pro marriage equality rally under the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture on Friday at 5 pm, and Fremantle Council is flying the rainbow flag high as well.

Love is not sexist or gender bias. People who love each other should be able to marry, and it does not matter if they are same sex couples.

Voting YES matters a lot to very many people who want to commit themselves to their partner.
