Stop the Use of Child Soldiers

On Friday August 27 the former warlord Thomas Lubanga Dyilo was convicted at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Prosecutors allege that Lubanga is guilty of conscripting, enlisting, and using child soldiers in armed conflict.

In order to contribute to the goal to stop the use of child soldiers Cinema for Peace started a petition that was signed by Angelina Jolie, UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy and the former child soldiers Emmanuel Jal, Kon Kelei and Ishmael Beah. Please act now and support us by signing the petition online.
