Immigrants Day - December 18
International Immigrants Day is a day of global solidarity with immigrants. Today, the UN International Covenant on the Rights of Immigrants declared in 1990. It was first celebrated in 1997 and only 17 years later, after the unification of immigrants and propaganda on the subject, it was celebrated again. Even today almost no one knows about the existence of the day This one, including the immigrants themselves.Immigrant Day is a celebration of 232 million people who said to themselves “I can no longer live in this place” and jumped on a plane with a one-way ticket.
There are lots of immigrants who have left to find new opportunities, but there are also those who have been forced to leave their homeland involuntarily, due to war, famine, natural disaster or human trafficking.
Due to climate change, the number of immigrants is expected to increase in the coming years. People who live in places that are prone to flooding due to rising ocean water levels for example, may get into a situation where they will have to leave where they live and start their lives in new places.
The issue of immigrants is very sensitive. It is not easy to absorb new immigrants, probably in a period that is not as quiet as it is today. But it also has a positive side - immigrants have millions of babies born in the receiving countries and they will be the future taxpayers who will help finance the pensions and social security of the locals.
International Immigrant Day was set for December 18, by the United Nations General Assembly on December 4, 2000.
December 18 is also Arabic Language Day
