180 million children face bleaker prospects than their parents – UNICEF

Despite progress, 180 million children face bleaker prospects than their parents – UNICEF

World Children’s Day activities in over 130 countries to provide platform for children to speak out about their concerns; advocate for children being left behind

NEW DELHI/ NEW YORK, 20 November 2017 – Despite global progress, 1 in 12 children worldwide live in countries where their prospects today are worse than those of their parents, according to a UNICEF analysis conducted for World Children’s Day.
According to the analysis, 180 million children live in 37 countries where they are more likely to live in extreme poverty, be out of school, or be killed by violent death than children living in those countries were 20 years ago.
“While the last generation has seen vast, unprecedented gains in living standards for most of the world’s children, the fact that a forgotten minority of children have been excluded from this – through no fault of their own or those of their families – is a travesty” said Laurence Chandy, UNICEF Director of Data, Research and Policy.
UNICEF is commemorating World Children’s Day, which marks the anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, with global children’s ‘take-overs’, high-profile events and other activations of children in over 130 countries to give children their own platform to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and fulfil their potential.
“It is the hope of every parent, everywhere, to provide greater opportunities for their children than they themselves enjoyed when they were young. This World Children’s Day, we have to take stock of how many children are instead seeing opportunities narrow and their prospects diminish,” added Chandy.
Assessing children’s prospects in escaping extreme poverty, getting a basic education and avoiding violent deaths, the UNICEF analysis reveals that:
  • The share of people living on less than $1.90 a day has increased in 14 countries, including Benin, Cameroon, Madagascar, Zambia and Zimbabwe. This increase is mostly due to unrest, conflicts or poor governance.
  • Primary school enrolment has declined in 21 countries, including Syria and Tanzania, due to such factors as financial crises, rapid population growth and the impact of conflicts.
  • Violent deaths among children below the age of 19 have increased in seven countries: Central African Republic, Iraq, Libya, South Sudan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen – all countries experiencing major conflicts.
  • Four countries – Central African Republic, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen – witnessed a decline across more than one of the three areas measured, while South Sudan has experienced declines across all three.
“In a time of rapid technological change leading to huge gains in living standards, it is perverse that hundreds of millions are seeing living standards actually decline, creating a sense of injustice among them and failure among those entrusted with their care,” said Chandy. “No wonder they feel their voices are unheard and their futures uncertain.”
A separate UNICEF survey of children aged 9-18 in 14 countries also released today shows that children are deeply concerned about global issues affecting their peers and them personally, including violence, terrorism, conflict, climate change, unfair treatment of refugees and migrants, and poverty.
Key findings from the survey include:
  • Half of children across all 14 countries report feeling disenfranchised when asked how they felt when decisions are made that affect children around the world.
o    Children in South Africa and the United Kingdom feel the most disenfranchised with 73 per cent and 71 per cent respectively reporting feeling that their voices are not heard at all or their opinions do not make a change anyway.
o    Children in India report feeling the most empowered with 52 per cent of children believing their voices are heard and can help their country and that their opinions can affect the future of their country.
  • Children across all 14 countries identified terrorism, poor education and poverty as the biggest issues they wanted world leaders to take action on.
  • Across all 14 countries, violence against children was the biggest concern with 67 per cent reporting worrying a lot. Children in Brazil, Nigeria, and Mexico are the most worried about violence affecting children, with 82 per cent, 77 per cent and 74 per cent respectively worrying a lot about this issue.  Children in Japan are the least likely to worry, with less than a quarter of children surveyed (23 per cent) worrying a lot.
  • Children across all 14 countries are equally concerned about terrorism and poor education with 65 per cent of all children surveyed worrying a lot about these issues. Children in Turkey and Egypt are the most likely to worry about terrorism affecting them personally, at 81 per cent and 75 per cent respectively. By contrast, children in the Netherlands are the least likely to be concerned that terrorism would affect them directly, at just 30 per cent. Children in Brazil and Nigeria are the most concerned about poor quality education or lack of access, with more than 8 in 10 children worrying about this affecting children across the world.
  • Around 4 in 10 children across all 14 countries worry a lot about the unfair treatment of refugee and migrant children across the world. Children in Mexico, Brazil and Turkey are the most likely to worry about unfair treatment of refugee and migrant children across the world, with nearly 3 in 5 Mexican children expressing fear, followed by more than half of children in Brazil and Turkey. Around 55 per cent of children in Mexico are worried this will personally affect them.
  • Nearly half of children (45 per cent) across 14 countries do not trust their adults and world leaders to make good decisions for children. Brazil has the highest proportion of children (81 per cent) who do not trust leaders, followed by South Africa at 69 per cent. Children in India have the most confidence in their leaders, with only 30 per cent not trusting.
  • Barack Obama, Cristiano Ronaldo, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift are the most popular names for children to invite to their birthday party, with the former President of the United States featuring in the top five in 9 of the 14 countries. Watching TV featured as the number one hobby of choice in 7 out of 14 of the countries.
World Children’s Day is a day ‘for children, by children’, when children from around the world will be taking over key roles in media, politics, business, sport and entertainment to express their concerns about what global leaders should be focusing on, and to voice support for the millions of their peers who are facing a less hopeful future.
“World Children’s Day is about listening to us and giving us a say in our future. And our message is clear: We need to speak up for ourselves, and when we do, the world needs to listen,” said Jaden Michael, 14-year-old activist and UNICEF child advocate.

FDP pull out on trust deficit Merkel

Talks on forming a three-party coalition government in Germany have collapsed after the free-market liberal FDP pulled out. FDP leader Christian Lindner said there was no basis of trust with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative CDU/CSU bloc and the Greens. If the FDP refuses to rejoin the talks, Ms Merkel will have to form a minority coalition or hold fresh elections. Her bloc won September’s poll, but many voters deserted the mainstream parties. After winning its first parliamentary seats, the far-right nationalist AfD (Alternative for Germany) vowed to fight “an invasion of foreigners” into the country.
Mr Lindner today said there was no progress but rather there were setbacks because targeted compromises were questioned. The parties involved in the coalition talks are reported to be deeply divided over tax, asylum and environmental policies.

Speaker Setya Novato arrested by anti corruption agency

Indonesia’s parliament speaker Setya Novanto has been taken into custody by the country’s anti-corruption agency, Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). He was arrested over his alleged role in causing state losses of 170 million US dollar linked to a national electronic identity card scheme.
Novanto was arrested on Friday night but Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) said it delayed enforcing his detention while he received treatment for injuries sustained in a car crash the day before.
The KPK is investigating state losses amounting to about 170 million US dollar linked to a national electronic identity card scheme after allegations that sums ranging from 5,000 to 5.5 million US dollar generated by marking up procurement costs were divided up among politicians in parliament.

Saudi Arabia warns on Iran Hezbollah

Saudi Arabia warned that it would not stand idly in the face of Iranian aggression, as Bahrain said the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement was in total control of Lebanon.

The Arab League meeting comes as tensions soar between regional arch-rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran, including over League member Lebanon.
Sunni Muslim powerhouse Saudi Arabia and Iran, the predominant Shiite power, have for decades stood on opposing sides of conflicts in West Asia including in Syria and Yemen.

Love Jihad a threat for the Hindus and the nation: Dr. Surendra Jain



New Delhi. Nov. 20, 2017. The kind of objection that the secular brigade has displayed on the distribution of Love-Jehad related literature at the spiritual fair in Jaipur by Vishwa Hindu Parishad, proves the anti-Hindu mentality of the secular brigade. The Int’l Jt. Gen Secy of VHP Dr Surendra Jain said that today the whole world is contemplating on how to tackle the Love-Jehad conspiracy. The term used by the west for Love-Jehad is Romeo-Jehad. In India, the name Love-Jehad has been given by the Kerala High Court. In a similar kind of case, the secular should be asked for answers to the questions posed by the Allahabad High Court. The Allahabad High Court has asked, “Why is it that only Hindu girls are getting married to Muslim boys. Why is it that Muslim girls are not getting married to Hindu boys?” “Why is it that only Hindu girls are converting to Islam but the Muslim boys are not converting to Hinduism? Why is it that a lot of these girls are simply disappearing after such marriages?”

Dr. Jain said that earlier it was only in Kerala and Karnataka, but now thousands of such examples have come up all over the country. In many instances, the Hindu girls have themselves spoken to the press and narrated the stories of their persecution at the hands of the Muslim. A Mumbai model has very recently spoken about the harassment she faced in the hands of her Muslim husband. On many occasions, the arrested criminals have accepted that they have been carrying out Love-Jehad under a planned conspiracy and get paid for it. Despite all these facts, how can the secular brigade of the country disrespect this VHP movement for reawakening of Hindutva and national security?, he asked.

             In India, a new dimension of Love-Jehad has raised its ugly head. The women who have fallen into the trap are being sent to terrorists. In Kerala, a father had knocked on the doors of justice, now a mother too has done the same requesting the court to intervene to save her daughter. The Hon Supreme Court has asked the NIA to investigate the matter. There is a suspicion in the minds of many in different walks of society that the women who have been waylaid in Kerala will end up in terrorist organizations. Today, Love-Jehad is a big threat to national security.
There is a lot of dis-satisfaction due to Love-Jehad in many places in the country. In Laddakh, this has reached its highest point because of the conspiracy hatched by the Jehadis for a long time. It is because of this Jehad that the Buddhists in Laddakh have beaten up the Muslims there. Even in neighboring Sri Lanka, there is talk of such skirmishes between Buddhists and Muslims. Even in Myanmar, the Rohingya problem basically has Love-Jehad in its roots. The time has now come to expose this conspiracy instead of concealing it behind the veil of secularism. Non-Muslims should now be on their guard, he added.
Through the press statement issued by Shri Vinod Bansal, the national spokesperson VHP today, Dr Jain also said that everyone should learn a lesson from the situation in Kashmir. The Muslims must learn a lesson from the Myanmar episode. This has also started in Laddakh and Sri Lanka. The secular brigade might try and put a veil over wrong deeds of the Jehadis but the affected people will definitely retaliate after a time. If this goes on like this, it will be a threat to the love and co-existence between the communities. The Muslims will have to abandon Jehad and learn to live in peaceful co-existence with the non-Muslims.

Nuclear launch order can be refused: Air Force General John

The top officer at US Strategic Command today said an order from President Donald Trump or any of his successors to launch nuclear weapons can be refused if that order is determined to be illegal.
Air Force General John Hyten, commander of Strategic Command, told a panel at the Halifax International Security Forum that he and Trump have had conversations about such a scenario and that he would tell Trump he couldn’t carry out an illegal strike.
The comments came as the threat of nuclear attack from North Korea remains a serious concern and Trump’s critics question his temperament.

Robert Mugabe to meet Army Chief Moyo today

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe will meet the country’s Army Chief Major General Sibusiso Moyo today amid intense pressure for the President to step down.
State media said, mediation will be led by a Catholic priest. 93-year old Mugabe has largely been confined to his house since the Army took over on Wednesday. The governing Zanu-PF party is also meeting to discuss whether to dismiss their founder and long-term leader.
The Army intervened after Mr Mugabe fired his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa. Mr Mnangagwa’s dismissal made Mr Mugabe’s wife Grace the front runner to become the next President.
Mr Mugabe remains in office but now faces overwhelming opposition from the generals, much of the public and from within ZANU-PF, the once loyal party now calling for his exit.
Mr Mugabe has led Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980.
