The only thing necessary for the persistence of evil is for enough good people to do nothing

United African Women

I have written several posts about children who are born here to immigrant parents who cannot get birth certificates and become illegal at the age of eighteen. See Life without Papers and If I didn’t Laugh.

To follow-up, I would like to point out a new blog started by Loretta Macauley, a founder member of the United African Women Organization. The aims of the organisation are to:

To create awareness of various issues concerning the African women and their children living in Greece.
To support and fight for the rights of especially our second generation and at all levels.
To create mutual bonds of solidarity between Africans and our host the Greeks.
To explore and incorporate the rich African woman heritage into the rich Greek heritage.
To work hand in hand with various social, NGO’s or Organizations that stand for justice, non racial and friendly society for all.

Please read Mobilization for birth certificates at the brand new blog.

Best of luck in your blogging activities. If you would like any help with it, let me know.
