Tasmanians take anti-bullying stand

Thousands of Tasmanians have taken part in an anti-bullying campaign following the tragic death of 15-year-old Hobart schoolgirl Chloe Fergusson.

 

The vibrant teen took her own life after being the subject of relentless physical and cyber bullying.

Her sister, Cassie Whitehill, has vowed to fight bullying through an online campaign titled ‘Chloe’s Law’, which urges the government to introduce anti-bullying legislation and hopes to make the community more aware of the dangers of teenage bullying.

The Facebook page already has around 20,000 likes.

Ms Whitehill has dubbed today ‘Say No To Bullying’ Day, and has urged all Tasmanians to wear a touch of blue, Chloe’s favourite colour.
