The Hunger Games
Transcript of The Hunger Games
The Children's Rights Litigation Committee was created by the Section of Litigation to address the vast underrepresentation of children in all aspects of the legal system. The Committee endeavors to increase the number of children's legal projects and pro bono attorneys to represent children, along with providing training materials and programs in order to assist advocates in providing the highest quality of representation for children.
Child Rights Information Network (CRIN)
The Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) is a global network that disseminates information about the Convention on the Rights of the Child and child rights amongst non-governmental organisations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, inter-governmental organisation (IGOs), educational institutions, and other child rights experts.
Children's right to HIV and AIDS treatment
The Global Movement for Children (GMC) is the world-wide movement of organisations and people - including children - uniting efforts to build a world fit for children.
Children's Rights is a national watchdog organization advocating on behalf of abused and neglected children in the U.S. Since 1995, the organization has used legal action and policy initiatives to create lasting improvements in child protection, foster care and adoption.
European Children's Network (EURONET)
The European Children's Network - EURONET - is a coalition of networks and organisations campaigning for the interests and rights of children (defined in the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as all persons under 18 years of age). They share a common concern that children's rights should be taken into account in all EU legislation, policies and programmes which have an impact on children's rights.
Human Rights Watch - Children's Rights Division
The Children's Rights Division monitors human rights abuses against children around the world and works to end them. We investigate all kinds of human rights abuses against children: the use of children as soldiers; the worst forms of child labor; torture of children by police; police violence against street children; conditions in correctional institutions and orphanages; corporal punishment in schools; mistreatment of refugee and migrant children; trafficking of children for labor and prostitution; discrimination in education because of race, gender, sexual orientation, or HIV/AIDS; and physical and sexual violence against girls and boys. Children's physical and intellectual immaturity makes them particularly vulnerable to human rights violations.
Unicef Convention on the Rights of the Child
UNICEF’s mission is to advocate for the protection of children’s rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.
United Nations Children's Rights
To highlight the existence of the most egregious violations of international human rights law and encourage Governments to investigate particular cases, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights has appointed a Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Children Rights Law - US: -Source: HG.org My Article: This Article is related to the movie The Hunger Games: This article relates to the Hunger Games because it is talking about the unfair things that sometimes happen to kids in the real world and how the US has tried stopped them and in the Hunger Games the games is an example of unfair things that happens to them in the pretend world that Katniss lives in. I know this because in the movie it says, President Snow: "And so it was decreed that each year the twelve districts of Panem shall offer up in tribute one young man and woman between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be trained in the art of survival and be prepared to fight to the death." And in the article it says, "The Children's Rights Division monitors human rights abuses against children around the world and works to end them. We investigate all kinds of human rights abuses against children: the use of children as soldiers; the worst forms of child labor; torture of children by police..." These quotes prove that both the article and the movie have the basic relation that they both talk about the unfair things that kids could and sometimes suffer. The reality in the Hunger Games is changed in many ways: One way the reality is changed is the concept of the Hunger Games. The concept of the Hunger Games is fictional because there has never been something in the world like it were the government makes the kids fight to the death. Another way that reality is changed is by the animated elements like the big monstrous dogs that are in the movie, and the super speed train, the computer generated forest, and the fire coming out of trees etc. These things make the the movie have more fiction and cause the reality to be changed. The creator of the Hunger Games changes these parts of reality for many reasons: The Creator changed the parts of reality in the Hunger Games so that it would appeal to the audience better. For example, if you have just a normal train or a regular forest with not fire coming out of trees then the story would lose it's fiction and part of its meaning It would also cause the movie to appeal less to the audiences. The creator changed the parts of reality in this movie so that it would add suspense. For example if the creator just left the animated elements regular and didn't add them to the story it would lose some of the suspense they bring. The computer generated forest adds the suspense because the audience doesn't know what the forest will through at the protagonist and the other characters. Reality is also used in the Hunger Games: Some reality that is used in the Hunger Games is hardship, hunger, poverty, cruel governments, and child abuse. The reality of the poverty is found in the protagonist's home town where many people starve there because of lack of food, water, and shelter. The reality of the cruel government is represented by the government making the kids fight to the death in order to show there power. I know this because, President Snow: "And so it was decreed that each year the twelve districts of Panem shall offer up in tribute one young man and woman between the ages of twelve and eighteen to be trained in the art of survival and be prepared to fight to the death." Some words that create tone and meaning in the Hunger Games are: Tribute
The Hunger Games
Starve The words' connotations: These words all have a negative connotation in the Hunger Games because they are part of negative situations that happen in the Hunger Games. These words contribute to the tone and meaning of the story: The negative connotations of this words create a negative tone for the story. It also creates a negative meaning. Figurative language in the Hunger Games: "Katniss Everdeen the girl on fire." is an example of figurative language in the Hunger Games. it is used to describe Katniss' fake "flames" that she wore. Another example of figurative language in the Hunger Games is "I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun." This is describing the way Katniss looked on the night of the interview before the games. "Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire."
