Recognising the potential impact of anniversaries

02 Jan 2022

On 28th to 29th April 2021, Australia marks the 25th anniversary of the Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania where 35 people lost their lives and some 18 people were wounded. Following Port Arthur, Australia’s gun control laws were significantly tightened. For those at Port Arthur on that day, or for those connected to what unfolded, the anniversary can be a time that stirs distressing memories and emotions.
