Children's Rights

On 20 November 1959, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, and on the same day, in 1989, the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted and ratified by Portugal on 21 September 1990. In the month in which we celebrate the anniversary of both documents and in the light of the news we see every day, we cannot fail to mention how urgent the defence of children still is today and the road we still have to travel.
