The Herald reports:

High-profile blogger is to launch a new anti-suppression lobby group called Shame.

Slater made the announcement this morning, several hours before he was due back in court for breaching suppression orders.

Shame, which stands for Suppression Helps Abusers Make Excuses, would lobby for a change in suppression laws, he told TV One’s Breakfast.

Slater said he was approached by a number of people, including Wanganui Mayor Michael Laws, to “affect change”.

“There’s a lot of support for my stance,” he said.

“The first day after I appeared in court I had 400 emails, a lot of them from victims as well saying we support your stance, we want to name the people who abuse us.”

You can join SHAME on Facebook.
