You are cordially invited to join the Migrants Day Fair to be organised by the Migrants Network of CSOs and Labour Organisations with the support of the ILO Yangon, United ACT, and Mekong Migration Network.
As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families, we remember that we, the human race, are all migrants. Our history is a history of migration. We also recognize that few of us today can find work close to our homes, most of us have to migrate for our livelihood. Whether it is to the city or to the seas or to a foreign country, most of us will have been migrants at some time in our lives. And yet, countries are still reluctant to sign up to the Convention to protect us all. We hope that we will get good news at our celebration!
