NZ Young People Deserve Better

We have a high rate of youth suicide here in New Zealand. One of our justice ministers has pushed for the law commission to act now over cyberbullies. Finally, there has been a move to get stricter on laws in order to stop cyber bullying. Our newspaper, New Zealand Herald, kicked off a campaign to highlight the damage that cyber bullying can do to our young people. It's too late for some but hopefully we can save others.

Hi Tessa,

Thank you for submitting this comment. This is an important issue that the New Zealand Herald has taken up along with the Minister, Judith Collins. I have included a link for other readers to read the article too so that they can support the cause:
