Children’s Day – Remember our fight to secure the future for Children
Children in a war zone such as Donbass are especially vulnerable - not only from the dangers of being murdered by snipers or shellings, but also the vast negative social, economic and psychological effects that war creates.
In 1925, the World Conference for the Well-being of Children declared June 1st as the day to draw the world’s attention to issues affecting children. The represented countries recognized that “mankind owes to the Child the best that it has to give.” As a result the Conference adopted the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
The child must be given the means requisite for its normal development, both materially and spiritually;
The child that is hungry must be fed; the child that is sick must be nursed; the child that is backward must be helped; the delinquent child must be reclaimed; and the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and succored;
The child must be the first to receive relief in times of distress;
The child must have the opportunity to earn a livelihood, and must be protected against any form of exploitation;
The child must be brought up in the consciousness that its talents must be devoted to the service of fellow humans.
The International Day for Protection of Children is also observed on June 1st and has helped elevate June 1st as the internationally recognized day to celebrate children. The International Day for Protection of Children became universally established in 1954 to protect children’s rights, end child labor and guarantee access to education.
I have been working with Donbass Human Aid to help children in Donbass – schools, orphanages and kid’s sports clubs, with food, clothing, school supplies and sports equipment. Every decent human being understands their obligation to help and protect kids around the world, and that all kids have an equal right to a future.
Children in a war zone such as Donbass are especially vulnerable – not only from the dangers of being murdered by snipers or shellings, but also the vast negative social, economic and psychological effects that war creates. The task is huge, but the rewards are great. Children are the future of humanity, and to protect them is to protect ourselves. After all, we were all children once.
I personally have chosen not to have children of my own, at least until the world becomes a better place with a better future than it has now. Not having children of my own allows me to see all members of the younger generations as equal, and equally deserving of my help, protection and support. We do not “live on” in our children, we live on in the difference we have made in the world for the future of ALL children.
On International Children’s Day, we should all take stock of what we have done to protect and nurture these kids who are the future of Humanity, and we must also honestly assess the threats these kids face, and where exactly they come from. When Madeline Albright was asked to comment on the fact that Clinton’s economic sanctions on Iraq in the 1990’s had killed over 500,000 children, she replied “It was worth it.” Now, the Trump regime is aiming to do the same in Iran. Do you think it is worth it?

In Ukraine under the US-backed Kiev junta, the cases of “missing” children have multiplied exponentially.Ukraine is a major hub of human organ trafficking, and just this month passed a law allowing sale of human organs. Joaquin Flores warned about this utterly evil law months ago, and now it has been passed. And, of course, the most sought after, and the most profitable, organs are from young people, children – the younger, the better. This is literally 21st Century cannibalism on an industrial scale. Without doubt, some of the missing kids in Ukraine have been sold to pedophiles, but it is also certain that others have been sold to pedovores.
As Captain Paul Watson said, the purpose of our lives, the overarching reason we are here, is to be “good ancestors”, to make the world a better place than we found it. It is an obligation recent generations, including our own, have not fulfilled. We can do better, and we must. Einstein once said, “The answers to all the world’s problems lie in the space between what people do, and what they could do.” Any decent person will help, just for the sake of the children, but any intelligent person will also help because they can understand that to help the children, the future of Humanity, is also to help ourselves.
There are criminals in Ukraine and in the West who commit crimes against humanity on a daily basis, and even worse, they commit crimes against the future of humanity. These crimes are political, social, military, economic and environmental. The perpetrators of these crimes are the mortal enemies of children, and they are our mortal enemies too. If we allow them to consume our children, to consume our future, we are no better than they are, and we too, will be consumed, and unlike the innocent and defenseless children, we will deserve our fate. This is the fight between Good and Evil, for the future of Humanity. We must help innocent children of the world, wherever they are, of course, but we must do more than that – we must protect them from the creatures who would consume them, harvest their organs, who would use, abuse, destroy and discard them.
Those who think killing 500,000 children is “worth it” to achieve false and criminal political ends, those who see human children as a profitable resource, as livestock, those who prey on the future of Humanity for their own selfish and evil ends must be stopped. They must be punished. They must be destroyed. To help the children of the world, we must first protect them from those who would devour them, who would devour the future. That is our work, that is our obligation. That is how we become good ancestors worthy of the love and respect of children, of future generations. So, let’s get busy. Davai!
