Zero tolerance to child abuse

Tauranga mother-of-four Suzy Brown hosted an anti-child abuse protest today to raise issue of child abuse.

Suzy organised Tauranga's Worldwide Peaceful Protect to raise awareness about the zero tolerance of violence against children.

Around 60 people meet up outside the Tauranga Police Station on Monmouth Street before making their way to the Tauranga Court House on Cameron Road.

Suzy says today is about getting people to think about child abuse so they can speak up if they see something happening.

“I'm trying to raise awareness, so more people will take notice when something isn't right and speak out about it.”

Tauranga City councillor Steve Morris spoke outside the courthouse about how reducing child abuse if about the community coming together.

He believes the more people are aware of child abuse, the more likely they are to recognise and report it.
