“It is my right”
PDF File Size: 61 KB | Download   
Sixty years ago today, on 10 December 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In so doing, a promise of rights was proclaimed to all men, women and children, of every race, colour, and religion.
The Universal Declaration emerged from a period of unprecedented global crisis
and human tragedy, to bring an inspirational message of hope, and vision of a new humanity to a deeply damaged world. It set in train an unstoppable process
towards the goal of human rights for all that has, in the 60 years that have elapsed, seen both progress and setback. Despite the countless challenges that remain, the message is an enduring one. The Universal Declaration has truly changed our world for the better. Where its principles have been adopted as fundamental tenets and laws, the Declaration comes to life in peaceful societies, enriched by their diversity, and resolute to achieve equality. Yet in some States or regions where conflict or oppression have taken their dreadful toll, the flame of hope that the Universal Declaration provides has burned only dimly.
