Statement by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake on Universal Children’s Day: Protect the rights of every child

NEW YORK, 20 November 2016 – "Universal Children’s Day is more than a day to celebrate children everywhere.  It is an annual opportunity to recommit ourselves to protecting the rights of every child. 
Universal, inalienable rights that the world pledged to protect on this day in 1989, when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Rights to dignity and security. To be treated fairly and to live free from oppression. To have a fair chance in life. The health and soul of all societies depend not only on how these rights are recognized – and acted upon. On this Children’s Day, we must confront the uncomfortable truth that around the world, the rights of millions of children are being violated every day."
