|Worldwide vigil for childrens rights|
|Friday, 26 April 2002|
This is why we are calling for candlelight vigils across the globe on May 8 to remind all governments that the promises made to children are a sacred trust. We will show the world that
we care about the rights of all children and we want them protected. We will especially call on the US government to join the international community in finally ratifying the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The vigils will start in cities and towns after sunset on May 8 to show global support for this issue. These events will be a memorable experience for everyone involved and a clear message to the world. We hope that we can count on your participation and support to make the vigils a stunning success. Please visit
our website to read more about the vigils and the UN Special Session. If you and your friends will join us in organising a vigil, please let us know by clicking below and sending in your response form (http://globalmarch.org/childrights/feedback/form5.html).
The candles that we light together around the world will bring us all closer to the day every child is secured with education, health, safety and happiness.
In Solidarity for Childrens Rights,
