“Violence is unacceptable – we can all agree. Alcohol has such an obvious role in our everyday lives that we, as a society, refuse to see the connection. In practice, this means that we close our eyes to the fact that many children and young people are severely affected. That women have to look an extra time over their shoulders when they walk home from the bus stop. That a football game can degenerate into violence and give scars for life.”
