European and Canadian Tourists Continue to Boycott US in 2011 to Protest US Failure to Protect Foreign Children Within Its Borders


Ariana-Leilani King-Pfeiffer Meets Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu

The US is the lone country in the world that has failed to ratify the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC).   As a result, when a foreign child from any where in the world sets foot on US soil, that child loses their rights under the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.  Foreign citizens — including those of nearby Canada — thinking of visiting the US have called this “outrageous” and “barbaric,” and are reconsidering any US travel plans with their children to the US.

To protest this failure of the US to protect foreign children within its borders, a boycott of US tourism is occuring to place pressure on the US Administration and the US Senate to join the rest of the world and, at a minimum, adopt UN CRC protections for children with foreign citizenship, such as Ariana-Leilani King-Pfeiffer, within its borders.

With the US economy already in a recession, this will be one more major blow.

So far there has been no comment on this boycott from the Obama Administration, the US State Department or the Senate Committee that deals with ratification of treaties.
