Waitakere White Ribbon Day Parade

The messages were loud, clear, peaceful and well received in the Parade and on the streets from the public. As volunteers gave out White Ribbons, tattoed White Ribbons on parade participants and disseminated resources, information and brochures from the community that Violence is not OK.

From loud hailers slogans like "Stop the Violence, Break the Silence!" 'Honour! the Women in your life', "STOP! VIOLENCE", "Family Violence, Is NOT OK!" echoed through Henderson shopping Centre, motorists tooted in support, the men and women in blue came out in great numbers and the Pacific Wardens helped keep us together.

Listen to the Herald online video of the Waitakere White Ribbon Day Parade here with interviews of Awen Guttenbeil White Ribbon Ambassador, WDHB Paeditrician Meia Schmidt Uili, and Inspector Jill Rogers Acting Area Commander Waitakere and other participants.

Local women trike riders Coral Timmins and Gabrielle Buchannan helped the parade along with the few bike riders.

The parade drew many tooting responses including the long and loud inspiring one from  the Lawn Master truck.

Go the Waitakere White Ribbon Day Parade!!
