73th Anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Adopted and proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 217 A (III) of December 10, 1948. On December 10, 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Thousands of people has died as a result of the atrocities suffered during the time of wars. But the WW2 was a remarcable one, in which Nazis killed millions in cold blood. Shortly after the WW2 in 1945 the winning countries (Britain, France, China, Soviet Union, and United States) created the United Nations. Today there are 196 countries members of the United Nations (UN). The original purpose of UN was to bring the peace and unity to the world and avoid the kind of atrocities experienced during the years of WW2.
To acomplish with laudable purposes, the UN created a Commission of Human Rights. Our Eleonor Roosvelt was leading the entrusted work of drafting the Declaration of Human Rights in coordination with the representatives of other countries. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and “to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories.”
However, we are experiencing the time where our human rights are manipulated, restricted, and in extremely ways the violations of human rights have become a common rule within many countries. Sadly the agencies responsable for the education of our children and young generations are not teaching that knowledge to the next generation. For that reason and in the first ten days of December, we will be sharing some educational videos and informative writing about the importance of Human Rights today.
Moreover, you can follow Criminal Justice Issues (CJI) in the different social media for more information. CJI is committed to educate and advocate for Justice and Human Rights.
Because this is the first time we are celebrating the anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights, we will highlighting the struggles and violations of human rights suffered by our Caribbean brothers of Cuba. After more than 60 years of totalitarian and dictatorship, we can say that’s enough and is time to demand Freedom to the people of Cuba. #HumanRights #UNDHR #USIDHR #Freedom #FreeCuba #PatriayVida
