ANNUAL SILENT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE MEMORIAL MARCH

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [5.23 pm]: I rise tonight to acknowledge that tomorrow is the Annual Silent Domestic Violence Memorial March, which is held every year and which I know a number of members in this place and the other place attend every year. I have been going for many, many years. For those members who may not be aware, the memorial march is held to commemorate and honour people who have died over the past 12 months from family and domestic violence–related incidents.
