Child Rights & Gender Violence - Day of Discussions Kolkata, India

In Kolkata on 7th December, children, youth including college students and members of civil society organizations, and members of the academia and the media got together to talk about gender in the event – Child Rights & Gender Violence. One of the highlights of the event was a book reading session of the book "No Nation for Women" by Priyanka Dubey and a conversation of the Author. 3 youths – 2 girls and 1 boy spoke on Gender Violence – Lived Experience. While the girls shared about their experience on having faced gender violence and the various challenges they are facing in getting justice through the legal system, the boy spoke on the need of sensitization of boys and the problem of “peer pressure” - of boys having to live up to a certain accepted “macho” standard which precludes sensitive conduct. It was concluded that gender sensitization and addressing gender discrimination and patriarchy is the urgent need of the day. The discussions ended with the positive message being shared about the need for acceptance, inclusion and compassion for all beings.

Presentación Informe “Sueños y Vidas Truncadas de una guerra que no es nuestra” Medellín - Antioquia, Colombia

La Coalico presento a la Comisión de la verdad el Informe sobre “Sueños y Vidas Truncadas de una guerra que no es nuestra”. El 20 de Noviembre pasado se comparto el documento con el propósito de aportar elementos objetivos y solidos que propicien el reconocimiento de la verdad sobre los hechos, el aporte a la paz plena y el rechazo inequívoco de todas las modalidades de vinculación directa o indirecta de niñas, niños y adolescentes en el conflicto por parte de todos los actores armados.

La respuesta positiva de la Comisión es un buen síntoma de la disposición de este mecanismo, surgido de los acuerdos de paz, para conocer en detalle con lo sucedido con la niñez colombiana.

Lastimosamente este informe surge en medio de la noticia sobre la muerte de 18 Niñas y Niñas en un reciente bombardeo del ejército colombiano a disidencias de las FARC y del escándalo producido pues el Estado Colombiano oculto este hecho, incumpliendo protocolos internacionales de debida precaución para este tipo de acciones militares en donde los NN son víctimas.
