INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST MEN AND BOYS: ENDING SCHOOL VIOLENCE
There is a campaign for the United Nations to name January 31 of every year as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Men and Boys and I fully support it.
The theme of the year’s campaign is Ending School Violence and it ties into our #NOPROTECTIONNOSCHOOL Campaign.
There is no other way to go than to seek that our precious children are protected within the school system. It is not also enough to want them protected, we must turn unto the SYSTEM’S APPROACH.
Our campaign kicked off on December 17, 2021, calling attention to the avoidable circumstances surrounding the death of Sylvester Oromoni and many other children, who died within the school system and how to prevent the same through SYSTEM’S APPROACH.
As at today, we have sustained the campaign for one and a half month on weekdays and once in a a while at the weekend. From the new month our advocacy shall now be weekly via articles and other means. We are also partnering with organisations to kick off a national and sustained campaign.
We will surely not rest until we gather enough PUBLIC WILL so MASSIVE to unseat the present unrighteousness of gathering our precious children in unprotected spaces, which is nothing but encouraging a crime scene.
Thank you and do have an INSPIRED week ahead.
