Campaign against child exploitation
Organised by the Butterfly Rebels in co-operation with the Catholic Youth Movement
Call for Political Change!
Above all else, one thing is necessary to remove child labour from the products we buy: laws that allow for greater controls of production processes. We therefore call upon politicians to pass and implement laws that would protect human rights in manufacturing industries. This would allow for an effective campaign against child labour and other violations of human and workers' rights.

His world will never be the same again, and he realises that he has no choice:
he will have to save her to save himself. After all, it all begins with him...
