Children and Human Rights 1

Children and Human Rights  1

Millions of children are working instead of having the right to play; some are even forced into prostitution and fighting in wars. This program features James Grant, the former Executive Director of UNICEF (1980-1995), who explains just how vulnerable children really are and reminds viewers that the US has the most child murders of any industrial nation in the world. Next, students at the El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice in Brooklyn, NY, sing a rap song, What's the Right, spreading the word about the UN agreement on children's rights. A 12-year-old African-American boy from Washington, DC, a 15-year-old girl from India, and Brazilian street children are profiled to illustrate the struggle, horror, and hopelessness of their lives. Then we meet Lois Whitman, founder of Human Rights Watch's children's rights division, who describes the Brazilian situation, and we begin to understand the challenges children all over the world face and the few rights they actually have. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
