A crime against children

This is the type of story that rips at the heart -
that this kind of abuse was EVER allowed.

Their spokesman is a hero on my book.

For the full story.

Subjected to a lifetime of brutal psychiatric "treatment" subsidized
by the Quebec government under Maurice Duplessis (above) and
others, the children above are lined up in a "waiting zone" orphanage.
Most will be transferred to Canadian mental hospitals — their only "crime"
a poverty-stricken background or a lack of education.

Many are not so lucky

Children are taught that slavery was abolished in the US by the Civil War.

But international organizations and NGOs put the estimate of the number of people trafficked each year at 2 million.

Freedom from slavery is covered by Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, illustrated by this short film.
