#WeEqual #WeAllMigrants

Also in the framework of the project informational brochures were prepared and published, which can be see in the photos.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON THE INTERNATIONAL MIGRANT DAY

For the International Migrants' Day, which is annually celebrated on December 18, the lawyers and experts of the PA LCWI "Sana Sezim" answered the questions of the Instagram page followers. Below we share the questions related to migration and answers of our experts.

INTERNATIONAL MIGRANT DAY

International Migrant Day is celebrated at the suggestion of the UN General Assembly annually, December 18, since 2000. On this day in 1990, the UN General Assembly adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.

The General Assembly resolution invited all UN member states, governmental and non-governmental organizations to celebrate the International Day of Migrants on the basis of activities to disseminate information about human rights and fundamental freedoms of migrants, exchange experience and develop measures to ensure their protection.

THE INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN "16 DAYS WITHOUT VIOLENCE"

The international campaign "16 Days without Violence", which took place from November 25 to December 10, 2020, came to an end. As part of the campaign, the PA LCWI "Sana Sezim" employees actively participated in online and offline events organized by government and non-governmental organizations, as well as law enforcement agencies, providing information on domestic violence issues, explaining how lawyers of the organization provide legal assistance and support, shared information on how to identify and types of domestic violence, the hidden signs of violence, where and how you can seek help. Also, interactive events were held for the Instagram users.

SIGNS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND HELP FOR VICTIMS

As part of the 16 Days without Violence campaign, we share information on identifying signs of domestic violence and providing assistance to victims.

Follow the signs of attention:

1. Injuries and scars on the body

2. Isolation from relatives and friends

3. Does not participate in activities that previously liked

4. Has some money

5. Fear, complexes, insecurity

 

Victims of domestic violence may not have injuries on visible parts of the body (face, hands) and behave as usual near the aggressor. People who are afraid of their aggressor and cannot ask for help from others can convey violence and the need for help in two ways. Pay attention to these signs too.
