Human Rights Watch: ALL children have the right to a safe education…


Around the world, schools are attacked or being occupied by military forces in conflict zones… Sports fields become battlefields. Classrooms become munitions rooms. This has a devastating effect on children. It endangers their lives, their teachers’ lives, and denies hundreds of thousands of children their right to education.


 It is time we put an end to this!

 The Safe Schools Declaration is a political commitment to protect education during armed conflict, ensuring the safety of a country’s future. So far 55 countries have shown their support by endorsing it.
It is time Canada became the 56th.

Human Rights Watch raised the Safe Schools Declaration with the previous Canadian Government on numerous occasions. Each time it was met with excuses or resistance.

It should be Schools Not Battlegrounds.
Continue your good example by signing the Safe Schools Declaration.
