Human Rights Day
December 10,2014 Zach Bader

In 1950, The UN General Assembly proclaimed December 10th as Human Rights Day. The goal was to bring to the attention ‘of the peoples of the world’ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of achievement.“Let us respond to the cries of the exploited, and uphold the right to human dignity for all.” Ban Ki-Moon UN Secretary-General

The objective of Human Rights Day is to promote human rights awareness among people all around the world and highlight the efforts of the United Nations to improve global human rights. This day also allows vulnerable groups such as indigenous peoples, children, those currently being detained, those of a certain race or religion (and many others) the opportunity to take part in celebration and political decision-making.Global Crisis

This year’s slogan, Human Rights 365, embraces the idea that every day of the year is Human Rights Day. It celebrates the fundamental proposition in the Universal Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the full range of human rights. They bind us together as a global community with the same ideals and values. With the current tragic events happening all over the world, its days like today that should promote human beings to better themselves and be able to enjoy their human rights in a peaceful environment.

Human Rights Day is normally marked both by high-level political conferences and meetings. It is celebrated by cultural events and exhibitions dealing with human rights issues such as adequate housing, civil and political rights, disease treatment and prevention, justice and many others. In addition, it is traditionally on the 10th of December that the five-yearly United Nations Prizes in the Field of Human Rights are awarded.
