The Song is put out into the Public facebook group and Voices are asked to join in on the victims thread. The song has a link to the thread and also the words and rules
The Voices are members of our facebook group, They are willing to add there voice into the song on the victims post, Voices agree to the song and “Drown out” the negative posts and comments. Voices do not take sides, they do not argue they just keep repaeting the lyrics and encourage the bullying to stop. Voices are encoraged to report offensive posts to Facebook, Twitter etc etc they are expected to allways follow the lyrics of the THINK song
An example follows
Julie is been subjected to many comments in a facebook group, An ex partner has put up a photo claiming she behaved badly. Within 30 mins of this going live 300 people she has never met or talked to have put a wide range of comments in breach of her human rights. Julie is frightened alone and ditrought
She contacts Global Anthem through the messager app on the Facebook page
