Lateral Love® Network is an information sharing initiative.

It is our aim for individuals to discuss important issues surrounding Lateral Violence in Australia, and we look forward to hearing views, opinions, suggestions and feedback during the Lateral Love® & Spirit of Care for all Humankind Campaign 2012 – 2022 and beyond.

The network provides a portal for people to talk directly to us about their personal experiences with Lateral Violence in a safe and confidential manner.

Together we can turn Lateral Violence into Lateral Love® through education and knowledge sharing, genuinely listening and empowering each other and those around us.

Yours in the fight for unity through Lateral Love® & Spirit of Care for All Humankind,

      Mrs Neutrons Garage: I’ve seen yr abusive reply to my comment and will be reporting u to the moderators! Such a hostile attitude is not welcome on this site. We are about love and restorative justice – not about furthering abuse and hostility.

    I am 54 years old and the highlight of my life has been working amongst and assisting Aboriginal people of Western Cape York.
    I have leared so much from the Kunjen,Kokoberra and Kokmenjenna and feel priviledged to have had the opportunity to work and reside in their Community.
    However, grog and sadness affects people in the wrong way. I hope I can spread this love around in Kowanyama Community.

    Dear Lateral Love Australia,

    I love this website and want to see it benefit those who come here looking for a genuine space to promote love and restorative justice for indigenous peoples and I really appreciate the fact that there are many in the community who are serious about positively acting on issues that adversely affect us and also promote a healthy climate of cultural regeneration alongside avenues for harmonious dialogue and discussion around indigenous concerns. I am rather concerned about someone by the name of Mrs Neutron’s garage, who is not really genuine in their interest about what goes on here. I received the following abusive response from them and am concerned that the presence of such hostile people should be restricted. This was their reply to me:

    “Sorry for me? Stick it up your ass Pollyanna! While you are at it… cut out the “u” crap and write like a grown-up.

    “Triumph over the wicked” is it now? What next… will you be raising money to fill in all the valleys because you love the mountains so much?”

    This kind of thing is certainly not lateral-love centered. I don’t know who “Pollyanna” is – that isn’t my username but the message was a reply to me. I suppose because I looked at his website and discovered a whole lot of “color-blind racism” which I tried to gently point out to him and that is what I copped. Is there anything that can be done to stop these kind of individuals from mis-using the site?



  11. This poor Siuyinh person. How I ended up a player in their illusionary persecution playlet I don’t know. I do know that there are psychological services available in many places. I hope Siuyinh lives in one of them.
