I came across a post on Facebook from an organisation that I follow, The Social Psychology Network. They announced that they had ,as an organisation, signed “The Anne Frank Declaration”.
I followed their link where you can download the document that can be signed and presented so that everyone can see it.
The words are as follows:
I declare that:
I will stand up for what is right and speak out against what is unfair and wrong
I will try to defend those who cannot defend themselves
I will strive for a world in which our differences will make no difference – a world in which everyone is treated fairly and has an equal chance in life.
I would like to see all schools download and sign and present this declaration proudly in their entrance foyer along with the pictures of sports success and certificates stating that they are a healthy school!
One child who did sign the Declaration was Josh from Redbridge, London, whose report for the BBC can be seen at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/club/your_reports/newsid_3895000/3895801.stm.
