Bullying is a form of abuse. Bullying behavior is often rooted in a would-be bully's inability to empathize and connect with others. It may manifest as violence due to internal turmoil. There are many forms of Bullying ranging from one on one contact, to one or more 'lieutenants' willing to assist a primary Bully. Cyber-Bullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate and hostile manner.
There will be Celebrity performances by The Rej3cts and J McCoy.
