"This fantastic initiative is made all the more powerful by the fact it has been organised by local students, who are the leaders of tomorrow," Ms Giddings said. "It's great to see young people from all over the Derwent Valley standing up to say loud and clear that bullying and discrimination should not be tolerated. This is a great example that the rest of the community should follow," she said.
A 25-minute video of the rally has been posted online by the DerwentValley Youth Future Action Team and it can be seen by clicking here.
