Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): It has been great to be out and about in the Prahran electorate meeting up with residents, businesses, community groups and organisations. In recent weeks I have spoken at Reconciliation Stonnington about the high rates of Indigenous incarceration in Victoria and the need for criminal justice reform. I spoke at Prahran RSL’s Remembrance Day ceremony, held community catch-ups at Prahran Square, Prahran Market, Domain and Carlisle Street and of course importantly at the Horace Petty public housing estate, which was well attended and we heard from residents there.

I attended the first smoking ceremony at Prahran High and heard from students about their terrific reconciliation action projects. I visited Windsor Primary to check on how students and staff are faring with the return to onsite learning and check out the progress of their new build. I visited Windsor Community Children’s Centre and had lunch with the young ones, where they demonstrated their skills in sign language. I visited South Yarra kinder where the kids took me on a walk and showed me where it was unsafe to walk around their kinder.

I toured NICA, the National Institute of Circus Arts, and saw students prepping for their end of year performances and I saw students’ work at the Australian Centre for Glass Design. Both are at the Prahran TAFE campus, which should be the home of a future Prahran arts and education precinct.

I went for a ride with Stonnington Bicycle User Group and checked out improvements needed at Chapel Street. I attended The Door in Question at the MC Showroom, saw recycled batteries at South Yarra Woolies’ new battery and phone recycling bin and of course met with constituents about a range of issues including recycling, EVs and pedestrian safety. There is plenty more to do before the end of the year. Big thanks to my electorate— (Time expired)

Members statements: Far-Right Ideology and Protest

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): I rise to condemn the inciting of violence, the parading of gallows and the torrent of racist, sexist and transphobic abuse that has been directed at my parliamentary colleagues. Peaceful protests, demonstrations and even some direct action are the hallmarks of a democratic society, but what is...
