History is testimony to the power of youth to challenge and change systems that oppress humanity. Their courage, compassion and conscience with the will to fight the culture of passivity and pessimism will end violence against children. #InternationalYouthDay #IYD2018 pic.twitter.com/PwwDsr5Bx0— Kailash Satyarthi (@k_satyarthi) August 12, 2018
