This week there have been two senseless acts of violence against women.  These two events have seen children left without their mothers. 62 women have died this year as a result of domestic violence.

Events that took place on the Gold Coast yesterday have seen McDonalds immediately pull their radio campaigns in not just one market or station, but nationwide for 48 hours.

This morning Gold FM’s Richard, Bridge and Spida spoke with Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk about the recent Domestic Violence attacks on the Gold Coast; and asked her what the Queensland Government is doing to stop Domestic Violence on the Gold Coast and in Queensland.

It is something close to Richard, Bridge and Spida’s hearts. Last night there was a social media trail and traffic where Gold Coast CD Andrew Very replied and handled comments from people asking how the station was addressing Domestic Violence.

Gold FM launched Stand Up To Domestic Violence earlier this week, before the events unfolded at McDonalds. It will see the breakfast team at the Currumbin Boatshed inviting the public stand up and paddle board along Currumbin Creek.

This morning the Today Show’s Lisa Wilkinson delivered some powerful images on the cold facts of domestic violence in Australia.
