Anguish as child abuse continues despite March for Moko
Four years on since the March for Moko and protestors say there's been no improvement in our child abuse figures in New Zealand.
Moko Rangitoheriri died in 2015 from injuries caused by abuse.
Now, there are fresh calls for change and for Oranga Tamariki to meet families half-way.
On Sunday activists marched through the streets of Lower Hutt with children in tow, calling for an end to child abuse and paying tribute to kids who have lost their lives.
One of them was Moko Rangitoheriri, the three-year-old who died after injuries inflicted by his carers in 2015.
Tash Lajpold was one of the 2016 organisers of the nation-wide protests in the wake of his death.
"Nothing's changed obviously," she says.
