The origin of the International Children's Day dates back to 1925, which is associated with two important events: the World Conference for the Wellbeing of Children in Geneva and the Dragon Boat Festival of Chinese orphans in San Francisco. Celebration of June 1st as the International Children's Day was first initiated by the International Federation of Democratic Women the meeting of 1949, June 1st as Children Day is celebrated in most of world countries.
Late into the night of February 25, 1992 the small Azerbaijani city KHOJALY became the target of Armenian armed forces supported by the ex-Soviet 366th regiment, and 613 civilians were killed including 83 CHILDREN. 56 people were killed with outrageous brutality, 8 families were totally exterminated; 25 CHILDREN lost both parents while 130 CHILDREN lost at least one parent.
Justice for Khojaly International Campaign recognizes the negative impact of ethnic, religious, political, humanitarian and territorial conflicts as major sources of violation of universal human rights, on the prospects of global inter-cultural dialogue; rejects the means of using violence, injustice, occupation, aggression and oppression in all their forms and manifestations, as well as calls upon international community and networks on local, national and international levels to join the “JUSTICE FOR KHOJALY CHILDREN” Campaign in diverse ways and actively contribute to remember all children that became victims of conflicts, massacres, terrors as well as those killed in Khojaly in 1992.
