To permanently erase the mural by convicted child sex offender Rolf Harris that is currently hidden by black Perspex at the Lighthouse Theatre, Warrnambool, and replace it with a mural by a local artist.
Why is this important?
We consider the decision to only cover up this mural an inadequate response to survivors of sexual abuse, particularly in light of the recent cases against Harvey Weinstein and Don Burke that have demonstrated victims will no longer be silenced by the fame or creative talent of the perpetrator.
We believe for the WCC to continue to cover up this mural is also at odds with its commendable support for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (#16Days), the White Ribbon campaign and the recent adoption of its Child Safe policy.
To erase this mural by a convicted sex offender sends a strong message that Warrnambool will not tolerate sexual abuse – by anybody.
