National Movement of Children, Girls and Teen Workers Organized of Perú-MNNATSOP
Who are we?
We are the National Movement of Children, Girls and Teen Workers organized of Peru, which gathers and expresses the historical fight of 32 years for the dignity of the children, girls and teen workers (CGTW) of the field and the city, defending our rights and promoting the leading participation of the Peruvian infancy.
We the CGTW from our organized, reflexive and collective experience, we think that the work in if it is neither obligatorily bad nor harmful to our condition of children, girls and teenagers, it depends on the conditions at which one is employed.
Because of it we support a critical valuation of the work, not only of children, girls and teenagers, but of all the young men, adults and women. We do not also agree with that is considered to be a work to: The prostitution, the infantile pornography, the children's traffic. We consider these activities to be crimes against the infancy and adolescence.
In the 70s a great social injustice existed in Peru, one was giving the agrarian reform and the workers in the factories were replaced by the machines.
The young of this time decided to organize but they saw that maybe could create a change of thought in the society; importance of the creation of conscience in the working infancy; because of it from the experience of the Working Christian Youth - JOC there decided to create the Movement of Teenagers and Hard-working Children Children of Workers Cristians-MANTHOC.
