End the Enslavement of Millions of Indian Children!

Aunque esta campaña está escrita en inglés, ya que la organización internacional que la promueve es de habla inglesa, creemos que podría interesarte.

Every day, millions of children in India wake up with nothing to look forward to except hours of back-breaking labour working everywhere from stone quarries to carpet factories to rice mills. Children as young as 5 years-old are kept from school, forced to work 7 days a week for up to 18 hours a day and end up with crippling injuries, respiratory disorders and chronic pain.

Because these children are often left illiterate and plagued with health problems, they are – in a cruel twist of fate – less likely to find employment once they reach adulthood. This continued enslavement of children traps generations of Indians in a vicious cycle of slavery, illiteracy and poverty.

Thankfully, the Indian Parliament is considering legislation called the “Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill,” which:

1. Prohibits the employment of children up until 14 years of age,

2. Outlines harsher sentences for violators of child labour laws and

3. Provides for monitoring of suspected instances of child slavery.

This legislation would put an end to the enslavement of children in India but it risks not passing without a demonstration of mass public support.

For every day the bill is delayed, several children remain at risk of being bought and sold to work in unimaginable conditions of sex slavery, bonded labour and domestic servitude. Any further delay in the passage of this historic law ending the enslavement of children in their country is simply unacceptable and we need to build massive public pressure that leaders in India cannot ignore.

Call on the Indian Parliament to immediately pass the “Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill” and end child slavery in India.

Pétition adressée à :
Indian Parliament
We call on you and your fellow MPs to immediately pass the "Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill," banning the employment of children up to 14 years old.

For every day that this bill is delayed, you are allowing modern slavery to continue to rob millions of children of the chance to be healthy, educated and free to build a bright future for themselves and for their country.

      "We call on you and your fellow MPs to immediately pass the Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill, banning the employment of children up to 14 years old when Parliament resumes in February.

      For every day that this bill is delayed, you are allowing modern slavery to continue to rob millions of children of the chance to be healthy, educated and free to build a bright future for themselves and for their country. "
