THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!
I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite...
That's the mantra we hear on Veteran's Day, and in any class we take on Modern World History. "Remember the Holocaust." Remember, so that we will never let it happen again. That's what we tell our students, that's what we tell our friends, that's what we tell ourselves.
But we aren't remembering the Holocaust. Because to remember the Holocaust, and for that memory to be a preventative measure against any future Holocaust, we cannot dwell in the tragedy of the past. We must be vigilant in defending against tragedy in the future. In...
This year for Fanpop Human Rights Awareness Month, I am doing an icon theme. I want to have four Human Rights Icon Contests (one for every week of December), with different themes for each week.
November 27-December 7: The first theme will be World AIDS day, which is December 1st. This contest will start now, and go until December 6th. Voting will occur on the 7th.
December 8-December 14: The second theme will be Celebrate Human Rights, in accordance with the theme for...
Children deserve love, home, loving people which care for them, security, education, life, chance, respect, hope, future, health, support, safety, justice, independence and much more things.
They just want the simplest and most basic things in life, but instead they get this:
hatred, violence, indifference, death, pain, homelessness, starvation, loneliness, rape, childLabor, disease, sorrow, escape, compulsion, injustice, misery, exploitation, trafficking and much more things.
For Fanpop's third annual Human Rights Awareness month, which I have organized every year since 2008 (OK, for two years), I am going to do...
And I am terribly guilty about it. Or I was. I'm disgustingly busy this year, so much that I barely have time to Fanpop at all, let alone head an entire campaign that, let's be honest, only a handful of people on Fanpop really care about anyway.
But I know that the people reading this article are part of that handful of people who do care about Human Rights, and about HRAM on Fanpop this...
NOTE: I screened all of these entries personally. If you submitted a poem, but don't see it up here, it's because you didn't follow one of the link. If I doubted a poem's relation to the theme and asked you to justify it, and you did not justify it at all, or well, then you won't find your poem here. If you didn't reply to my questions asking you to fix your poem so it fit into the five rules linked above, then your poem won't be here. This is to clear up any...
December 1st is World AIDS Day, which makes it the perfect day to begin Human Rights Awareness Month here on Fanpop.
Now the disease itself is not a human rights concern. True, the HIV epidemic is devastating, but we can't charge the virus with human rights violations. What is a human rights concern is the lack of preventative measures, as well as treatment for those infected, the world over. Secondly, the stigma of being HIV positive is still a source of major discrimination. And that is definitely a human rights concern.
Following the format of the link in January of this year, the Human Rights Spot is sponsoring the Fanpop Human Rights Poetry contest for Human Rights Awareness Month in December.
1) All poems submitted must be related, in some way, shape or form, to the human rights theme.
2) Poems may have been written at any time, so long as they are the property of the submitting user.
Hello, fellow human rights enthusiasts! We're three months away from the winter solstice, which has long since been a time for loving, giving, and charity in several religions the world over. That's right, I'm talking about December! The month of Christmas, Hanukkah, Bodhi Day, Al Hijra, Kwanzaa, Zarathosht Diso, Ashura-- You know!
I strive to think of a religion that doesn't have a holiday in December. Hinduism doesn't have one this year, but soon enough, Diwali, the Festival of Lights, will be in December again, and then it will.
