The Red Hand campaign is a worldwide protest action supported by multiple organisations against the use of child soldiers. In this workshop we make clear that in many countries even today children are being abused and used as soldiers. Why does this still happen? How are the children doing? What rights do they have? After the discussion, the participants have the opportunity to make their statement against the use of child soldiers by making a handprint with red paint. In various projects in the world, the red handprints are being made and collected. Once a year, on the 12th of February – International Red Hand Day – they are presented to UN representatives to create a podium and give attention to the rights and protection of children.
