* World School Violence Expulsion Day (January 11, every year)
Tens of millions of students worldwide, including children, suffer from school violence every year. Many students also give up their precious lives each year to escape the pain of school violence.
WORLD FEDERATION OF POWER LEADERS has developed a 'Safety System for the Prevention and Expulsion of School Violence,' in which all countries in the world can co-operate in concert with each other to publicize the seriousness of school violence and to keep students safe from school violence. For this purpose, January 11, the anniversary of the establishment of WFPL, was designated and declared as 'World School Violence Expulsion Day.'
Even recognizing the seriousness of school violence which is evolving into a more cruel and anti-inhumane form, each country of the world is unable to respond appropriately. Victims are continually on the increase by verbal violence in cyberspace, such as SNS, which is easily accessible anywhere in the world without direct contact, and bystander phenomena that neglect it.
It is especially damaging to young students who need a healthy social environment where they can play freely and nourish their dreams. This is a very serious global problem that is not confined to any one country but common to many countries around the world.
