Communify Qld received $3,000 to produce and promote community education YouTube videos in six languages, including Russian, Mandarin, Amharic, Tigrinya, Farsi and Bengali, all with English subtitles. Six bilingual presenters were recruited to be filmed as they presented information about what is considered to be domestic violence and what services exist in line with the Queensland Government’s Not Now Not Ever campaign and messages.  pharmacie en ligne france

Communify Qld hopes the project will bring greater awareness about support and services available to CALD families who are experiencing domestic violence, so that the stigma surrounding domestic violence in many communities can be overcome and people who are suffering in silence can be encouraged to speak up and seek support and services.

This video presents information about domestic and family violence in Farsi.


This video has been created for women and men from Culturally Diverse backgrounds to increase understanding about domestic violence and support services in Queensland. Communify Qld Multicultural Program produced this video and recognizes the financial contribution of the Queensland Government.

من خيلي شوكه شدم وقتي فهميدم در ايالت كويينزلند چه مواردي به عنوان خشونت خانوادگي در نظر گرفته می شود و اينكه واقعا چقدر شرايط در كشور استراليا متفاوت است.

خشونت خانوادگي فقط يك خشونت فيزيكی نيست بلكه شامل توهين، تهديد ، مزاحمت جنسی يا حتی مداخله در آزادی شخصی افراد هم ميشود.

خشونت خانوادگی فقط مربوط به خانواده ها نمی شود بلكه يك جرم محسوب ميشود كه بايد خانواده ها را در مقابل آن محافظت كنيم.

حتی اگر فقط يك فرد از اعضا خانواده مورد اين رفتار خشونت آميز قرار بگيرد، مي تواند روي ساير افراد خانواده هم تاثير بگذارد.

فرزندانی كه در چنين خانواده هايی بزرگ می شوند، معمولاً در آينده هم مشكلات بزرگتری خواهند داشت .

مراكزی هستند كه می توانند با ارائه نصايح قانونی، مشاوره دادن و حتی پناه دادن به صورت فوری به شما عزيزان كمك نمايند.

شما مي توانيد به انجمن های محلی، دكترهای عمومی و مراكز زنان مراجعه نماييد تا در صورت لزوم شما را به اين مركزها مرتبط نمايند.

همچنين می توانيد با شماره تلفن ١٨٠٠٨١١٨١١ در ارتباط با خشونت های خانوادگی تماس بگيريد.

اگر مايل به داشتن مترجم هستيد با شماره تلفن ١٣١٤٥٠ تماس بگيريد.

ممكنه اولش فكركنيد كمك خواستن در مورد خشونت خانوادگی خيلی سخته ولی اين اولين قدم برای داشتن يك زندگی خانوادگی پر از صلح است.

ما نمی توانيم بگوييم كه خشونت خانوادگی به كسی ربطی ندارد بلكه اين مشكل روی كل جامعه تاثير می گذارد.

خشونت خانوادگی اصلاً قابل پذيرش نيست.

English transcript

I was stunned when I found out what is considered domestic violence in QLD, and the way things are so different in Australia. Domestic violence is not just physical violence. It includes threats, insults, sexual assault, and interfering with someone’s personal freedom.

This abuse is not a private matter to be dealt with by the family. It is a crime and families have the right to be protected against it, even if only one person is subject to the abuse, it still affects others in the family, and that children growing up in abusive families may develop problems themselves.

There are services which can help, by offering counselling, legal advice or emergency accommodation. You can go to a GP, Community Centre of Women’s Health Centre and they can put you in touch with them. 

I learnt that I can call the Domestic Violence Hotline on 1800 811 811. I can also call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 13 14 50.

It made me think seeking help can be a difficult step to take, but it’s the first step towards a more peaceful family life. 

We can’t say domestic violence is no one else’s business, it’s a problem affecting the whole society.

Domestic violence is not acceptable.
