Beatbullying are staging 'the biggest fight against bullying that Europe has ever seen. The bullying prevention charity are launching an online protest on Wednesday morning to ask for new laws to protect children from bullying. Their survey shows that 55% of children in Europe who have been bullied said they became depressed as a result, while 35% said they harmed themselves or thought about suicide (38%). The charity hopes that hundreds of thousands of people will march across global websites (using avators) to help put an end to bullying and deliver an e-petition to the European Commission.
