We at METAL SHOCK FINLAND are very proud to announce our association with the non profit organisation RACPA UK (Rock Against Child Pornography And Abuse UK).
The dedicated members of the organisation work very hard to promote awareness about this subject, through their website, and organising and attending rock concerts, to give the message that any form of child abuse is not acceptable.
This in their own words is what RACPA UK do:
‘Simply put We are an awareness campaign group, ordinary people, with ordinary lives, who got involved in something that we all believed in completely, because Child pornography and abuse has no borders, no politics, no religion. It does not see colour, gender, race or age. It simply destroys the lives of everyone it touches.
We are the same as every one of you who reads this parents, step parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, brothers and sisters, human beings…only we are shouting out to make heard the silenced and silent topic of child pornography. The risk to children both in cyberspace and the real world from the evil of paedophiles and paedophilia in whatever form or context it may arise.
Because in that silence it flourishes…We hear the silence of the children, and cry out on their behalf……
…..and all we ask is that you too HEAR to HELP…‘
…and what we do…
‘So we are organising concerts, primarily within the Rock genre, to combine live performance with the strong message that ANY form of child abuse is not acceptable and that we demand changes that favour the victims of such crimes and more resources to be made available in the field of prevention.Through the medium of music, we can reach out to the thousands who want to see reform for our children in the modern world. We make a noise, we cry out for those with no voice of their own. Help us make that cry even louder, so that our children cannot be ignored any longer.Together we WILL break the silence, and make a difference for the children of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.’
