On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 3 March, the day of signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as UN World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. The UNGA resolution also designated the CITES Secretariat as the facilitator for the global observance of this special day for wildlife on the UN calendar. World Wildlife Day has now become the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife.
Activism is an important part of learning and developing oneself. Being a student activist does not mean being angry at the world; it is about unity, passion and, most importantly, a desire for change. That, rather than being complacent and accepting things as they are, defines progressive student activists.
The walkouts are not an anti-gun protest. It’s nonpartisan. It was created first and foremost to stand with Parkland students.
Gun violence it’s not just schools. It’s movie theaters, it’s concerts, it’s nightclubs. This kind of stuff can’t just keep happening.
