Younger men use violence:

An increasing number of younger men are using violence against family members - "mostly mums" - a specialist family violence agency says.

Of about 190 men listed on family violence police incident reports in North Canterbury in a 12-month period, 23 were aged 15 to 19. The majority, about 30 per cent, were aged between 20 and 29, and five were under 15.



NZ's Hidden Abuse:

A CONFERENCE to examine recommendations made following a critical report into the widespread abuse of disabled people here was yesterday streamed live nationwide.

A local working group made up of social, health and community groups commissioned a report into the problem last year and sought lottery funding to address the situation.

LA Kings defenceman charged for domestic violence:

Slava Voynov's wife told police the Los Angeles Kings defenceman hit, choked and pushed her into a television in their bedroom during a fight in October, an officer testified on Monday (Tuesday NZT).



Operation undeway to reduce family violence this Christmas:

Waitemata Police operation underway to reduce family violence this Christmas.

For the past four years, Waitemata Police have seen an increased number of family violence incidents in December and January. Money worries, the Christmas season and family pressures are thought to be behind the rise, and Waitemata Police have launched a specific operation that aims to reduce family violence this festive season.



More work against violence needed:

A new global report on violence prevention shows New Zealand is ticking the right boxes, but there is still work to be done, a domestic violence expert says. 

Jointly published by the World Health Organisation, the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the report reflects data from 133 countries, including New Zealand, covering 88 percent of the world's population.



Attitude adjustment solution to abuse:

Ankle monitors and tighter alcohol regulations will not help prevent family violence, says Wairarapa's leading violence prevention agency, adding greater risk assessment in the court system, education and changed male attitudes are better solutions.



Bryce Edwards: New Zealand's war on the poor:

Under capitalism there's always going to be a war against the poor. The process by which we divide up the resources of any society normally involves exploiting the majority for the benefit of the minority.
