NZNO head reveals incessant online abuse

From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 4 November 2020

The Māori head of the Nurses Organisation has revealed she's been the victim of incessant, targeted online abuse - including death threats -  for the past year and a half. 

It comes after a New Plymouth nurse was stripped of her registration last month for calling Māori nurses fat and lazy on social media. 

Kerri Nuku says she's been afraid to speak out about her own experience online, until now.
