I'm Louise's dad, and what you're about to seeare all the messages my daughter received.
Victim or witness ?
Over the last couple of years, social networks and mobile phones have steadily gained importance in our lives, and along with them a new kind of bullying has presented itself. A kind of bullying that does not end when the school bell rings, but one that goes on night and day and locks victims in an unbearable situation, cyber bullying.
The consequences? Health issues (insomnia, eating disorders...), depression and in the most tragic cases, suicide. Cyber bullying is a real problem and should not be treated lightly. With the right attitude, we can fight this threat together.
If you are faced with this issue either as a victim or a witness, the first step to take is talk to someone about it, to your friends, teachers, parents or a responsible adult. Anonymous, free helplines also exist, such as (in Belgium) 103.

Cyber bullying: a living nightmare
As an Internet and mobile provider, VOO is more concerned than ever about cyber bullying and its terrible consequences. As a result, and in collaboration with the Federal Police, VOO is committed to doing whatever it can to put a stop to this dangerous threat.
We were particularly moved by the stories of the victims, the number of which has been rising steadily over the past couple of years. Sixteen-year-old Louise took her own life after having to endure the inexplicable hate of numerous bullies behind their screens.
«You think you're pretty, but you're ugly and stupid, you should just hang yourself». According to her friends, these are the kind of messages Louise received every day.
She did not tell her parents but rather kept it to herself and tried to fight the bullies off until the day it all became too much. Louise decided to end the suffering by taking her own life on September 3rd 2014. Her story is similar to many others; 1 in 10 teenagers becomes a victim of cyber bullying. Many teenagers are afraid to talk about it because they are ashamed. It is, however, important to tell someone in order to find help.
We are aware that it will be difficult to put a complete stop to this complex phenomenon. Nevertheless, we are convinced that, with your help and thanks to the commitment to respect in our manifesto, we can guarantee a hate-free online and mobile network. This is why your signature is so important.
