On Wednesday 30th June Helen from Amnesty International came to talk to us about Human Rights and judging people by what they do, what they look like and how they act. Did you know that 2.5 million people around the world work and sponsor Amnesty International.That is a lot of people!! This is what they do: support children that have been forced to hold a gun and kill people or be forced to do slavery like coco farms that they don't get paid for.
What rights do we have in NZ? We have beds to sleep in, have friends, have shelter, drink water, eat food to live and we go to school.
What are forms of discrimination? Being left out, not being allowed to speak a different language, judging people by the way they look.
What can you do to stop discrimination?
We can help people that are different, being friendly, smiling, talking nicely and telling people how you feel.
Thank you to Helen.
