Latest news about the ItsNotOK campaign

ItsNotOK have just launched a new resource telling people of the danger signs of being in a violent relationship. 

The Danger Signs

Signs that someone is in danger of being killed by their partner are often missed by friends, family and others until it is too late.

  • Controlling behaviour
  • Intimidation
  • Threats to kill
  • Strangulation and 'choking'
  • Worsening violence – more severe, more frequent
  • Intense jealousy or possessiveness
  • Stalking

For more information see: http://areyouok.org.nz/family-violence/the-danger-signs/

Member of Parliament Jan Logie supports law changes for domestic violence.

A member of parliament Jan Logie proposes a law change to domestic violence, allowing  employee to be able to have 10 days paid leave while dealing with domestic violence situtations. 

“The 10 days of paid leave in any calendar year could be used for medical appointments, legal proceedings and other activities related to family violence. Already provision for paid leave exists in some collective agreements, but for working people without access to collective organisation in union, there needs to be a minimum legal right also.”

These changes cant come soon enough and we support this proposed bill. 

See the link below to the article.
