Human Rights Day 2017: What Is Universal Declaration Of Human Rights
11 December 2017, 12:28 | Tara Lloyd
Federal Ministers to meet with provincial and territorial counterparts for first summit on human rights in almost 30 years
This day is celebrated to mark the anniversary of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states the rights that every human is entitled to as a human being regardless of caste, creed, race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, and religion. Universal human rights are often expressed and guaranteed by law, in the forms of treaties, customary global law, general principles and other sources of worldwide law. In an effort to enhance women's rights and gender equality on the continent, the African Union devoted 2016 to the promotion of human rights in general and the rights of women in particular, while 2017 is dedicated to the rights of the Youth. But human rights are too important to be left to states alone - too precious to all of us, and to our children.
Today is International Human Rights Day, in recognition of the 10 December 1948, when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
On the International Day for Human Rights, teleSUR takes a look at both victories and struggles in the quest for human rights in the region. A year later, December 10 was declared Human Rights Day.
The white paper claimed the U.S.is a self-styled "human rights judge" who scrutinizes human rights situations in other countries. This will be the first formal gathering of federal, provincial and territorial ministers on the topic of human rights since 1988.
How can Human Rights exist when Humans do not even dignify themselves by destroying the planet, insulting Mother Nature, ruining the Earth, polluting space, the skies, the land and the seas, dessecrating its forests, burning down trees murdering their inhabitants, dropping bins of toxic waste to the depths of the ocean without any respect for the creatures living there, and murdering countless species of animals before they are even encountered? However, one thing that unites us all is human rights.
In Latin America, activists promoting human rights are frequently murdered in countries like Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Brazil and Argentina. Governmental and non-governmental organisations active in human rights conduct special events to commemorate the day.
