World Refugee Day 2011

A description given by the UNrefugee agency UNHCR, declares that a refugee is someone who has been put on to run away from his or her country due to harassment, war, or hostility.As a result, the refugee’s revisit to his or her home country is prohibited for the reason of the terror of harassment on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political judgment and devotion in a particular socialgroup.
The United Nations' (UN) World Refugee Day is remembered on June 20 every year. This occasion respects the bravery, powerand strength of mind of women, men and children whoare required to flee their mother country under dangerof discrimination, clash and aggression.  The day is devoted to lift up consciousness of the state ofaffairs of expatriates all through the world. The day isa greeting to the strength and bravery of the world’s many refugees, forwarding tothem our back up, support and admiration. There are just about 40 million people on the earth who have been expatriated from their homesdue to hostility and maltreatment, and in the prospect this number will amplify due to more and morecomplex issues, such as the sprain on civilizations and economies from harsh transformations in climates. Roughly a third of refugees are public who have run away their nations because of civil wars and racial, ancestral and religious brutality.  They were forced to escape, they have lost thewhole thing and they can’t revisit their home nation. On the other hand, many of themdecline to give up hope. Commemorating their braveryand guts and make them see our support is what World Refugee Day is all about.

World Refugee Day History
For years, many nations and districts have been holding their own events parallel to World Refugee Day. One of the most extensive proceedings is Africa RefugeeDay, which is notable on June20 in many countries. The UN General Assembly espoused a decree to state its solidarity with Africa on December 4, 2000.
The decree noted that 2001 was the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention connecting to the position of refugees, and that the Organization of African Unity (OAU) decided to have International Refugee Day happen together with Africa Refugee Day on June 20. TheAssembly consequently decided that June 20 would be observed as World Refugee Day from 2001 onwards. This day was chosen by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees tobring concentration to the dilemma of around 14 million refugees round the world.

World Refugee Day Events and Activities
People credit the guts and bravery of millions of refugees globally on World Refugee Day. It is a day to highlight the contributions of refugees in their society. Associations for instance Amnesty International and theInternational Rescue Committee (IRC) frequently getoccupied in a variety of activities for the day. They may include:
*.Campaigners remonstrate against making use of prisons to hold migrants and asylum seekers.
*.Screenings of movies about the life styles of asylum seekers living in western nations.
*.Association members trip to asylum seekers in imprisonment to offer moral support.
*.Notes and appeals to governments on the management of asylum seekers in custody.
Some group of people devotea complete week that comprises World Refugee Dayto cheer people to feel about the lives of refugees and thehuman right to a safe place to that one may refer to as “home”.
The UN Refugee Agency's (UNCHR) emblem is frequently connected with the day. The colors used are either white on a blue backdrop or blue on white backdrop. The logo comprises olive twigs that represent tranquility surrounding or shielding two hands in front of each other and in the center a shape of a person shielded by these hands. The logo is at times featured with the words “UNHCR”, tagged on by “TheUN Refugee Agency” in minor text to mark the logo.
The UNHCR in Canada makes use of an unusual World Refugee Day symbol that comprises two figures – one smaller figure on the left and a taller figure on the right. They are confined by brackets or half circles. The words “World Refugee Day” are positioned at the centre apex of the figures, and “20 June” is positioned at below the figures at the centre. All the constituents of the logo are in the single shade– green.
