Human Rights for All

Today is a human rights day celebration, and the anniversary of 60th Universal Declaration on Human Rights. On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

United Nations declared Universal Declaration of Human Rights with many essential purpose, which we can see in the preamble of it. Whereas those purpose is based on the basic human need. Universal Declaration of Human Rights has considered that recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace the world. In the other hand, this declaration want to protect individuals from atrocities and abusing their rights. They considered that disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous act which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human being shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people. United Nations also see that men and women have equal rights and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, considered the importance of the development of friendly relations between nations, and want to promote understanding of these rights and freedom is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge.

Therefore The General Assembly proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Every human has rights. That is the essence of our humanity. It places on each of us the duty to stand up, not just for our own rights but also for those of others - and to help turn the vision of the UDHR into a reality. That is the spirit of international solidarity. That is the true meaning of universal, indivisible human rights.

On this special anniversary, many people will gathering together in hundred of places around the world, to light a candle, fire, and flame in a mass demonstration.

On Human Rights Day, we ought to stand up for human rights and let show our solidarity with all people around this globe who are committed to making human rights a reality for everyone.

Happy human rights day for all...
