Nonviolence Incorporation Publishes Statement on World Day Against Child Labor

Coinciding with the World Day against Child Labor on June 12, Nonviolence Incorporation (Freemuslim Association) published a statement, which reads as follows:

Nonviolence Incorporation (Freemuslim Association) calls on all human rights organizations around the world to end child labor and urges political organizations and social leaders to adhere to ILO treaties in this respect.

Nonviolence Incorporation (Freemuslim Association) also calls on the international community to celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Children and to pay attention to the importance of this important segment of society and prevent them from entering the labor market before reaching the legal age.

It also calls on countries and major powers to reach out to developing nations and countries and free them from the status quo; countries and nations that continue to suffer from the growing trend of this painful phenomenon.

The report shows that the number of working children being forced into the labor is increasing, and that children are being forced to work in sectors that threaten their health. In addition to forced labor, they are deprived of their human rights; rights that are determined, granted and guaranteed by all earthly and heavenly laws. Beyond that, this group is suffering from poverty and political unrest in disadvantaged areas; therefore, the Nonviolence Incorporation (Freemuslim Association) blames individuals and communities that fuel and perpetuate the phenomenon of child labor.
