We started a campaign to abolish private intervention order fees for domestic violence cases. Victims were being forced to pay for protection. Finally, we see action: the state government has pledged to scrap the fee in the New Year.

BARRIER: Australian Community Media's newspapers around South Australia featured a front-page plea for action to remove the financial barrier to private intervention orders for victims of domestic violence.
