There was a lot of discussion about how it depended on what the consequences were for not accepting help. There are times when people want to be independent and not accept help and that decision does not impact on others, whereas, if your refusal for help has negative consequences for others - it is wrong to say no.
'Depending on the situation, we need to help people in a crisis because they may be in danger. If it's like picking up a pencil you can let people get on with it themselves and be resilient. But people may need help with problems like the rain forest burning since that takes 20% of all of our oxygen.'
We discussed how Martin Luther King was campaigning for equality and watched his famous speech 'I have a dream'. We agreed that the main message in his speech was:
'I have a dream is the world famous speech by Martin Luther King . His aim was equality for all black and white. Even if their skin is a different colour they should have freedom.'
Like Article 2 in RRSA includes all children regardless of race, sex, beliefs etc.'
'We think it is child labour because at that age children should be going to school and playing with their friends bot being forced to work and also if they have to carry heavy things, injuries are very possible.'
'We think we are very lucky and a lot more safe because they drink dirty water and they live in a bunker/street which is very bad for their health.'
'In the UK we are getting our rights but others are being denied their rights. They are getting bad water which could make them poorly, child labour and not at school.'
'Unlike us, other countries are not being provided with all their rights... rights to keep us safe and protected from danger.'
'It is very evident that none of us in this room have ever experienced child labour.'
