United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.
November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Science Fiction … but also a harsh critic of censorship, where books are outlawed and where the media use all of their power to make people « happy »
Guy Montag is a fireman who burns books in a futuristic American city.
In Montag’s world, firemen start fires rather than putting them out.
The people in this society do not read books, enjoy nature, spend time by themselves,
think independently, or have meaningful conversations. Instead, they drive very fast,
watch excessive amounts of television on wall-size sets, and listen to the radio on
« Seashell Radio » sets attached to their ears. The society is not just superficial,
it is also on the brink of war and media mix soap operas and violent comedy with
nationalism and war fever.
