December 10, 1948 - December 10, 2018
70 years where the United Nations Organization marks every year on December 10, Human Rights Day, a day that reminds of the date when the United Nations General Assembly adopted in 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
According to the UN, the human rights movement has made visible progress over those 70 years, but, unfortunately, human rights abuses continue around the world. Therefore, this anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a good opportunity not only to exalt the successes achieved, but also to engage newly in respecting and applying the principles outlined in the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
"Without a common commitment of citizens to support and protect these human rights in their neighborhood, then we are waiting in vain for these universal human rights to be implemented in the wider world," has emphasize Eleanor Roosevelt.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights gives each of us not only to protect our human rights, but also the rights of others. As an inspiration to support human rights for our self and others, in this 70th anniversary, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a universal and important document for every individual and society - at the same time, according to the UN, this is the world's most translating document in more than 500 different languages.
On this date, the Coalition "Women Security Peace" draws once again the attention that:
Women's Rights are Human Rights!
