DON'T BE A BYSTANDER

Intervene early, if you see something that does not seem right; don't let silence condone inappropriate behaviour.

"Let us remember; what hurts the victim most is not the cruelty of the oppressor, but the silence of the bystander." (Elie Wiesel, Human Rights Activist & Nobel Peace Prize recipient)
