Do you realise that 2008 is the 60th year anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
On December 10th, 1948, the newly formed United Nations adopted a universal declaration that transcended cultural and national boundaries. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights established a common standard for human achievement for all peoples and all nations; rooted in the values of freedom, equality, solidarity, tolerance, respect and shared responsibility.
Our commitment to sentiments contained in the Universal Declaration is as important today as it was 60 years ago. Our world remains marked by division and gripped by fear. Genocide is happening again. Poverty is trapping billions in lives of despair. Challenges like climate change, lack of access to health and shortage of decent employment opportunities confront us all.
Every Human Has Rights! and it’s time for us to take individual responsibility. Only with many individual voices behind them can The Elders and others make a substantial call on governments to deliver on their commitments to protect and uphold our human rights.Make your personal pledge by signing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights today.
