Context/ Focus: Family violence 
Concept: Human rights,  Social justice, Community,  Society, Perspective, Culture. 

Family violence is when a family member uses any type of abuse to another family member. From my perspective, family violence is not okay because it’s basically breaching human right number 5 ( No one shall be subjected to torture or inhuman treatment) plus human right number 30 (no one should take away your human right). This issue also relates to Social justice because we need to stand up and spread awareness by starting within our community or elsewhere. I figured Family violence may come under culture also because within the Pacific community, there’s a strict rule called discipline which many Tongan families call it though I’m not familiar where it exists in other pacific countries I know Tonga and Samoa for sure adapt this way where children are been beaten by pacific parents if they disobey them.  This should be recognized and be concerned by human society because family violence may be happening in our countries yet we don’t know of it. “United we stand, Divided we fall!”
