'Massive Hikoi' welcomed by Human Rights Commission

May 28, 2015

The Human Rights Commission is welcoming this week’s MasSiVe hikoi led by Kiwi men who oppose sexual violence.

“I’d like to particularly congratulate educator and MP Kelvin Davis for leading the MasSiVe hikoi, walking the talk and showcasing that more men need to stand against the sexual violence of women” said Human Rights Commissioner Dr Jackie Blue.

“I am really proud to see that MPs from all parties are supporting this important hikoi.”

“Sexual violence isn’t just a woman’s problem, sexual violence is everyone’s problem and it can only be solved if Kiwi men join Kiwi women to highlight and fight sexual violence.”

MAsSiVe is a rallying cry for any man who opposes sexual violence, against anybody, in any shape or form, be it verbal, physical or emotional with a hikoi starting tomorrow from West Auckland to Te Rerenga Wairua to raise awareness around Men Against Sexual Violence.

“It’s not OK to have sexual violence in our communities and I’m proud to see everyday Kiwi men standing up to remind us of this,” said Dr Blue.
