Walk Against Sport Violence

This Sunday, Port Moresby residents, including Governor Powes Parkop and Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko, will walk for Peace and Unity on Zero Tolerance of Sporting violence.

It will be supported by the rugby league fraternity, with an open invitation to other sporting codes.

A short dedication service will be held after the walk in honor of Agmark Gurias supporter, Late Joe Pidik.

The walk will start at 6:30am on the September 11, at Jack Pidik Park.

The idea of the walk came after the passing of late Joe Pidik, who became a victim of violence in sports.

NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, said the walk is organised to express the collective rejection of violence in Sports, and all forms of violence in general.

Chairman of PNG Rugby Footy League, Bob Cutmore, supported the walk and condemned the incident of two weeks ago between Mt Hagen Eagles and Agmark Gurius.

Cutmore says PNGRFL will make a final decision this Saturday, on whether to endorse the decision by PNG National Rugby League, or asked them to relook at their decision.

Meanwhile, PNG Hunters Coach, Michael Marum says there is no room for violence in sports, and he extends his invitation to other sporting codes to join the work on Sunday.

Parkop clarified that the walk will not be against the Eagles or the Gurias, but it will be against violence.
