Anton Blank : ending Maori child abuse

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 23 June 2013

Some of New Zealand's best reggae artists are joining forces to help fight child abuse, with the release of the Herbs' song, 'Sensitive to a Smile'. All proceeds from the single by Aotearoa Reggae Allstars will go to Mana Ririki, a charitable organisation with a mission to eliminate Maori child abuse. It was set up in 2007 after the death of Nia Glassie. Today Chris talks to Mana Ririki executive director Anton Blank who believes Maori must take responsibility for the issue, and solutions must be Maori-led.
