LATERAL LOVE AUSTRALIA DEFINITIONS

 

 

WHAT IS LATERAL VIOLENCE?

Lateral Violence is the power and control used by a dominating authority and individuals, to disconnect and decimate a people’s or person’s nationhood birthrights, to their spiritual and cultural heritage, self and cultural identity and ‘sense of being’. This is done by means of colonisation processes that ‘normalise’ institutionalised systems of violent intimidation, manipulation and deception politically, environmentally, religiously, legitimately, governmentally and socially.
