The International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression is a United Nations observance each 4 June. It was established on 19 August 1982.
Originally focused on victims of the 1982 Lebanon War, its purpose expanded to “acknowledge the pain suffered by children throughout the world who are the victims of physical, mental and emotional abuse. This day affirms the UN’s commitment to protect the rights of children.”
The General Assembly, having considered the question of Palestine at its resumed seventh emergency special session, “appalled at the great number of innocent Palestinian and Lebanese children victims of Israel’s acts of aggression” decided to commemorate 4 June of each year as the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression. 31st plenary meeting 19 August 1982.
If you see child abuse or aggression against any child, please call your local child support center, police station, or social worker. Also, there’s a helpful article on Medical News Today.
I know a lot of hackers. I, myself, am a hacker but being a hacker doesn’t just mean infiltrating other people’s systems. If you do hacks, you’re a hacker.
For example, few years ago when I was backpacking I had trouble opening a glass of pickles. What I did was to use a spoon to lower the pressure between the lid and the glass and when the compressed air was released, I opened it.
That was a hack. A simple hack to open a glass. Hacking doesn’t just mean sabotaging or entering security holes.Continue reading
There’s nearly 4 billion people in the world that are connected to the internet. Near half of the earth’s population right now. Internet has become something very important in our lives. Almost all data and information we use is transferred via internet.
Right now, free flow of information depends on internet and internet has been of the most important tools to protect free speech and human rights. Censoring internet or putting limitations on its connectivity is for sure a violation of freedom of speech.
Some governments like Iran, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, etc. censor internet a lot. During protests in Kashmir, Indian government blocked internet access. Good internet connectivity, right now, is almost impossible in Kashmir and it’s very hard for journalists and people to report about the situation there.
During the latest protests in Iran, same thing happened and internet was down for near a month and people were unable to report their situation to anyone. This is a thing that should never happen again.
Governments like India can run a genocide. Same thing happened in Burma against Muslims and because of lack of connectivity to internet, nobody knew about it for a long time and even after world found out about it, the Burma’s government denied everything and tried to censor news and information about it.
We should find a way to provide a service (internet) that can’t be censored or limited. Protectors of human rights and governments that pretend that they value human rights should try to provide unlimited and not-censored internet to ensure that people can talk freely and report violations on human rights all around the world.
Today, protesters in Minneapolis clashed with police following death of George Floyd, a black human being, because of police brutality.
In a video that went viral on social media, a black human being was pinned down by a blue pig. Today, people were protesting against this brutality and this horrible, obvious violation of human rights.
The man in the video was telling the blue pig that he can’t breath but the pig refused to move his leg, which was placed on the neck of the arrested man, and the pig was pushing more weight on the poor guy’s neck. RIP George Floyd.
Police officers all around the world are brutal and protectors of power. People all around the world experience this violence and we’re forced to obey their rules.
This injustice and brutality happens a lot in U.S., against black people (among other races). I believe waiting for the system to do something is wasting time. People should rise and protest and don’t stop till something serious happens from government.
This brutality, injustice, inequality, and discrimination should be stopped immediately with guarantees that these things will never happen again.
“Justice delayed is justice denied”. Don’t forget about this and rise up.
Menstrual Hygiene Day is an annual awareness day on May 28 to highlight the importance of good menstrual hygiene management. It was initiated by the German-based NGO WASH United in 2014 and aims to benefit women and girls worldwide. The 28th was selected to acknowledge that 28 days is the average length of the menstrual cycle.
In low-income countries, girls’ and women’s choices of menstrual hygiene materials are often limited by the costs, availability and social norms.Adequate sanitation facilities and access to feminine hygiene products are one part of the solution. Creating a culture that welcomes discussion and makes adequate education for women and girls is of equal importance. Research has found that not having access to menstrual hygiene management products can keep girls home from school during their period each month.
Menstrual Hygiene Day creates an occasion for publicizing information in the media, including social media. Public information campaigns can help to engage decision-makers in policy dialogue. The day offers an opportunity to actively advocate for the integration of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) into global, national and local policies and programs.
Two days ag, Palmer Luckey reported on Twitter that Google (YouTube) is deleting his comments about a Chinese propaganda.
YouTube has deleted every comment I ever made about the Wumao (五毛), an internet propaganda division of the Chinese Communist Party. Who at Google decided to censor American comments on American videos hosted in America by an American platform that is already banned in China?Palmer Luckey
I believe we should all work to ensure human rights and freedom of speech. Women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, black rights, workers’ rights, etc. All are human rights. We cannot forget other societies under the pretext of supporting one society.
What I do believe in is that every human being that fights for its rights, is a great soldier and a future maker. The war is not finished. This is a war against those who still can’t accept that slavery is over.
But today’s slavery is different. In today’s world, people are slaves of capitalism. People are slaves of those who believe women are less than men. We see this everyday in our lives.
Women are paid less than men in a same job. Women are still considered housekeepers by default. There’s still silly talks that men don’t have emotions. Workers are still being oppressed by the rich. Many people have sexuality that is not respected.
We should not fight for black rights; we should not fight for LGBTQ rights; what should we do is fighting for humans because we all are humans. Every human being, no matter what its job, sexuality, financial status, color, nationality, ethnicity, etc. is, should be respected and treated fair and equal.
Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it.Karl Marx
