Something In Common

BackMeUp is an anti-cyberbullying campaign designed to help you understand your rights, and the rights of others, how cyberbullying can affect these human rights, and what you can do about it.
We’ve all heard about cyberbullying. You may have even been a victim of cyberbullying. But how often do we talk about the bystanders? You know, people who know it’s happening, but don’t want to get involved?

Bystanders can make a HUGE difference because:
  *Bystanders are often present online when bullying occurs.
  *When bystanders intervene, bullying is likely to stop.

C’mon, make a difference. Get cracking and make an online video about how you and others can back-up someone who is being cyberbullied.
Check out the videos created by 13-17 year olds about how to help your friends out if you see them getting cyberbullied.
