General Events:
World Day Against Child Labour
 in the World
World Day Against Child Labour is observed on June 12, 2015. The World Day Against Child Labour is an International Labour Organization–sanctioned holiday for the purpose of raising awareness and activism to prevent child labour in both economic and military fields. The ILO created this observance in 2002 and it has been held annually since then.
Child labour refers to the employment of children in any work that deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their ability to attend regular school, and that is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful. This practice is considered exploitative by many international organisations. Legislations across the world prohibit child labour. These laws do not consider all work by children as child labour; exceptions include work by child artists, supervised training, certain categories of work such as those by Amish children, and others.
Child labour was employed to varying extents through most of history. Before 1940, numerous children aged 5 – 14 worked in Europe, the United States and various colonies of European powers. With the rise of household income, availability of schools and passage of child labour laws, the incidence rates of child labour fell. In developing countries, with high poverty and poor schooling opportunities, child labour is still prevalent.

Red Rose Day 2015
June 12, 2015 in the World
Red Rose Day takes place on June 12, 2015. It’s a day to appreciate the favorite flower. Roses have been long used as symbols in a number of societies. A well-known symbol of love, roses are ancient symbols of love and beauty.
Roses are best known as ornamental plants grown for their flowers in the garden and sometimes indoors. They have been also used for commercial perfumery and commercial cut flower crops. Some are used as landscape plants, for hedging and for other utilitarian purposes such as game cover and slope stabilization.
Celebrating the many facets of the rose, Red Rose Day is a time for gardeners, florists and romantics to come together and enjoy the rose in all its splendour.

Loving Day 2015
June 12, 2015 in the USA
Loving Day takes place on June 12, 2015. Loving Day is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving vs. Virginia which struck down all anti-miscegenation laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states citing “There can be no doubt that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the equal protection clause.” In the United States, anti-miscegenation laws were U.S. state laws banning interracial marriage, mainly forbidding marriage between non-whites and whites. Loving Day is not yet an official recognized holiday by the U.S. government, but there is a movement to persuade U.S. President Barack Obama to make it as such.
