Boys and Girls Are Coming Forward to Claim What Is Rightfully Theirs - The Fundamental Human Right to Go to School

Today the Angry Birds are a little bit angrier. The characters that have become a worldwide gaming phenomenon are flapping even more furiously because 58million children are not in school and learning. Rovio Entertainment, the Finnish creator of Angry Birds, has added a huge boost to the #UpFor School campaign by launching a new tournament where players are asked to sign the petition going to global leaders. It demands that every child has the right to go to school and already has the support of seven million people worldwide.
