Dia Internacional das Crianças Vítimas de Agressão
(International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression). Unfortunately, reports of child abuse and violence against children appear almost every day. Not only in Brazil or in the Netherlands, but in the entire world. It is estimated that in Europe only, more than 1300 children die because of violence every year. On 19 August 1982, at its emergency special session on the question of Palestine, the General Assembly, “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 (resolution ES-7/8).
“On this solemn occasion, we need to recall the sacred duty, enshrined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, to ensure that all children, without any exception whatsoever, enjoy special protection.”
