PDHRE: Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women


Excerpt from the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, part I, para. 18:

“The human rights of women and of the girl-child are an inalienable, integral and indivisible part of universal human rights. The full and equal participation of women in political, civil, economic, social and cultural life, at the national, regional and international levels, and the eradication of all forms of discrimination on grounds of sex are priority objectives of the international community.”

Excerpts from Discrimination Against Women: The Convention and the Committee, Fact Sheet #22, UN Centre for Human Rights:

 

“Equality is the cornerstone of every democratic society which aspires to social justice and human rights. In virtually all societies and spheres of activity women are subject to inequalities in law and in fact. This situation is both caused and exacerbated by the existence of discrimination in the family, in the community and in the workplace. While causes and consequences may vary from country to country, discrimination against women is widespread. It is perpetuated by the survival of stereotypes and of traditional cultural and religious practices and beliefs detrimental to women….”

“The concept of equality means much more than treating all persons in the same way…. True equality can only emerge from efforts directed towards addressing and correcting … situational imbalances. It is this broader view of equality which has become the underlying principle and the final goal in the struggle for recognition and acceptance of the human rights of women….”

URICT – Uganda – ENDING CHILD AND HUMAN SACRIFICE IN BUSOG


URICT was formed to assist the rural people and villagers get access to information, fight the digital age, advocate for their fundamental rights and improve their health and socio-economic status and lives using an integrated approach especially through Information and Communication and Education
URICT ‘s vision is “A Uganda with informed and educated rural people/villagers accessing quality, adequate and equitable Information and Communication and Education services at the same time seeing that their rights as disadvantaged peopled are respected by state of Uganda” while URICT Mission is “To contribute towards raising the level, Quality & Equity of Information and Communication and Education Services and advocate for the rights of rural people and villagers in Uganda through increasing access, advocacy, economic empowerment and working with other development actors”
URICT would like to introduce you to her 10years program to end Child Human Sacrifice. Child Human sacrifice is the act of killing human beings as part of a religious ritual (ritual killing). Its typology closely parallels the various practices of ritual slaughter of animals (animal sacrifice) and of religious sacrifice in general. Child Human sacrifice has been practiced in various cultures throughout history. Victims were typically ritually killed in a manner that was supposed to please or appease gods, spirits or the deceased, for example as a propitiatory offering, or as a retainer sacrifice when the King servants die in order to continue to serve their master in the next life. Closely related practices found in some tribal societies are cannibalism and headhunting.
The idea of human sacrifice has its roots in deep prehistory, in the evolution of human behaviour. Mythologically, it is closely connected, or even fundamentally identical with animal sacrifice. Walter Burkert has argued for such a fundamental identity of animal and human sacrifice in the connection of a hunting hypothesis which traces the emergence of human religious behaviour to the beginning of behavioral modernity in the Upper Paleolithic.
Unlike in the past where parents could just buy a doll for their children and they could appreciate them. Today, this is not the case in Uganda following the rampant child abduction, reportedly for sacrifice. Children in Uganda now adore their parents full time protection than gifts.
Busoga Eastern Uganda leads in the act of Child Human Sacrifice, with over 2-3 children sacrificed every week. The Ugandan police and the authorities have not properly responded to end Child Human Sacrifice, because many of the rich, wealth and corrupt government officials are directly involved in sacrificing children in Uganda.
URICT has opened up a program to take information to the people, and tell them that Child Human Sacrifice should end and a new era has come. That way the witch doctors and all the parents involved in Child sacrifice will hear the call.
