Ausbeutung und Gewalt, Missbrauch und Mangelernährung, keine Fürsorge und keine Schulbildung: Straßenkinder sind schutzlos. Sie werden diskriminiert, gelten pauschal als kriminell. Die meisten Kinder, die auf der Straße leben, haben bereits eine Geschichte von Gewalt und Vernachlässigung hinter sich. Das Guenekreuz.net,at fördert Projekte, in denen Straßenkinder in ein geregeltes Leben zurück finden.

More than half of them - about 28 million girls and boys - are on the run due to wars and other dangerous situations. It is estimated that an estimated 17 million children and young people are displaced within their own country. Depending on the situation, these girls and boys are regarded as migrants, refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced persons - but they are above all one: children. The refugee and migratory movements to Europe have lasted for almost three years. Most of the children suffer from it - between January 2015 and September 2016, more than 664,000 children have applied for asylum in Europe, nine out of ten children in Italy are unaccompanied, and 23,000 children remain in Greece, their future is uncertain and they have moment No possibility of education. At least one third of refugees arriving in Greece across the sea was under 18 years of age in 2016. At the same time, the share of unaccompanied minors arriving in Italy has doubled compared to the previous year. Alone this year are drowned in an attempt to come to Europe an estimated 700 children. ------------------------------------* The integration of unaccompanied children with their families must be simplified and the childlessness of children must be prevented.

UNICEF calls for the children to be particularly protected when the city of millions is re-conquered. "The children from Mosul have suffered immensely over the past two years. Many might be forced to flee, or be captured in the warfront and the war. " Since March 2016, about 130,000 people have fled in the area around Mossul in Iraq before the military operations. UNICEF fears that, in view of the escalation, thousands of children will also have to seek refuge in overcrowded and inadequately equipped emergency shelters and camps. Please help the children in Iraq! An Iraqi girl had to flee from her home because of the dangerous conflicts and is now in the Debaga refugee camp near Mossul. She misses her old school every day. Many children in Iraq have been under the control of the so-called Islamic state for more than two years. Many of them are sick because they have had to drink polluted water in the past months.

I'm afraid they'll take them with them, as they did in other villages, "says Zainab, who is fleeing violence with her children.

Recent news reports and witness accounts indicate that another chemical weapons attack has taken place this week in the Idlib Province of northern Syria. It would appear at this point that over 75 people have been killed and hundreds more injured. Green Cross (GCAR) condemns this inhumane and illegal attack, along with all prior attacks with chemical agents in Syria, and calls for an immediate halt to any such use of chemicals in warfare, as banned by the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). Dr. Paul Walker, international director of Environmental Security and Sustainability at Green Cross (GCAR), has stated: “This latest attack, one of many such attacks with chemical agents in Syria since late 2012, is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and has already been widely condemned by many States Parties of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague. We need to quickly identify the perpetrators and hold them accountable as war criminals in order to finally put a stop to the ongoing use of these inhumane, indiscriminate, and illegal weapons.” While the Syrian government has denied any attack in the Idlib Province this week against rebel forces, witnesses have described the attack as taking place from aircraft and helicopters and victims exhibit the symptoms of nerve agents. The last major attack with nerve agents in Syria took place in August, 2013, when the Syrian air force attacked the Damascus eastern suburb of Ghouta, killing over 1,400 people, primarily innocent civilians, with sarin nerve agent. The OPCW’s Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) of on-site inspectors, along with the United Nations’ Joint Investigate Mechanism (JIM), have verified three chemical attacks with chlorine by the Syrian military in 2014 and 2015, and should be on-site in the Idlib Province this week to investigate these reports, collect forensic evidence, interview witnesses and surviving victims, and maintain control of samples for subsequent laboratory testing. The Syrian Arab Republic, which joined the CWC in September 2013 under pressure from the United States, Russia, and other countries, declared a total chemical weapons stockpile of 1,308 tonnes. These weapons were removed from Syria, under OPCW inspectors’ auspices, by mid-2014 and permanently destroyed (on board the US ship, Cape Ray, and in four countries – the US, Germany, Finland, and the UK) by the end of 2015. If further investigation indicates that this attack was indeed by Syrian military forces, it will mark yet another violation by Syria of its obligations under the CWC and no doubt catalyze further condemnation by the world and possible other consequences. ___ Read the latest statements from the OPCW, here. Paul Walker has made a number of statements on this issue to media in Australia, where he has been attending the 2017 World Congress on Public Health: 7.30: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2017/s4648907.htm

Dangerous US nuclear accident at Hanford Nuclear Reservation – latest costly legacy of the Cold War The US Department of Energy declared an emergency early Tuesday morning, May 9th, when workers noticed the partial collapse of an underground tunnel used to store old railroad cars filled with dangerous nuclear weapons waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington State. Green Cross International, which has spent over two decades helping governments and communities to contain and remediate highly toxic wastes, including radioactive wastes from the nuclear arms race, called for immediate emergency response and careful evaluation of the potentially dangerous accident which could impact 230,000 citizens in the tri-city region (Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco, Washington), as well as the much larger tri-state region (Washington, Oregon, and Idaho). The US federal government has called for some 4,800 workers at the large, sprawling, 586- square-mile (1,518-square-kilometer) site to seek cover, remain inside, or evacuate until the seriousness of the accident can be evaluated. A mobile robot is reportedly being used now to help measure if any radiation has been released. The site includes nine old nuclear reactors and five plutonium processing facilities, all shutdown and “cocooned” since the end of the Cold War. One commercial nuclear reactor, the Columbia Generating Station, continues to operate. The Hanford Nuclear Reservation in the United States is sometimes called the dirtiest and most dangerous site in the US. Established in the 1940s during the Manhattan Project to develop nuclear weapons, it has been used to produce weapons-grade plutonium for most of the 60,000 US nuclear weapons developed since World War II – including material for the first nuclear bomb test at the Trinity Site and for the “Fat Man” nuclear bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945. Today, Hanford contains 177 storage tanks holding over 53 million US gallons (212 million litres) of high-level liquid nuclear waste and another 25 million cubic feet (710,000 cubic metres) of radioactive solid waste. Past scientific reports have shown leakage from the rusting tanks and atmospheric emissions downwind. The US Government, which currently spends about $2 billion annually for Hanford management, has estimated it will spend $107 billion for another 40+ years to help clean up the site.
