Human Rights Day 08

Today’s Human Rights Day 2008. It’s the culmination of a year-long effort by the United Nations to promote observance of basic human rights by governments and people from all around the local planet.

On Human Rights Day, 10 December, 2007 the Secretary-General launched a year-long campaign during which all parts of the United Nations family took part in the lead up to the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) on Human Rights Day 2008.

The UN’s UDHR should be required reading in schools, churches, and other places where people gather. Link to the post for 7 December 2008.
