Stop cyberbullying now
Cyber bullying is harmful. It is dangerous. It is wrong.

It is also easy, which is why so many troublemakers indulge in this type of behaviour, hiding behind the anonymity of maligning others online.

This has to stop and the rights of individuals have to be protected, especially those of young people who are most vulnerable to this form of bullying.

So while education against cyber bullying must be strongly advocated, protection of, and support for those who have been bullied must be the priority. If you know a young person in need of this help, call the Federation's hotline services...
