Stop the Breaching of Children's Rights in Palestine
We want the United Nations to recognise the consistent breaches of children's rights in Palestine and take actions to prevent further mistreatment, abuse and neglect of children in the future.
Why is this important?
“If there is a hell on earth it is the life of a child in Gaza”
- UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
We, young people of Cork, call on everyone to sign our petition for an immediate end to the attacks on the past, present, and futures of Palestinian children.
If it is "hell on earth" why have the constant attacks not stopped? Why have these children not been saved? Why has the destruction of the Palestinian people, culture, and way of life been allowed to continue?
We call upon the international community to recognise the consistent breach of the Geneva Convention and the UNCRC and to take steps to ensure such breaches are not repeated.
As youths, we ourselves understand the need for care, safety, and security throughout childhood. We understand the damage that a lack of such can do to those who would otherwise flourish in a safe and healthy environment. How can we stand aside while this is being denied to children like ourselves in Palestine?
