13 Human Rights Unite Bloggers

Bloggers Unite Human Rights

This is a subject that should be totally unnecessary to write about. In fact I HATE the fact that I have to write this… but we need to unite all over the world to get focus on all this violating of human rights that are going on and hopefully make a difference.

We just have to do it. We’re all humans, right?

Remember the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights?

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”

13 Human Rights Points

1. Considering the fact that even Guinness Book of Records describes the UDHR as the most translated document in the world, we does seem to have very big difficulties to understand it…..!!!!

2. Alfabetic listing of translations of the declaration of human rights to other languages - in case some one have problems to understand it…

3. Human rights are protected under the Instrument of Government here in Sweden, one of Swedens 4 fundamental laws, but not even we Swedes are perfect. We do have some violations too in this country, even though not as much as in certain other parts of this wonderful (?) world.

4. Human rights topics in Amnesty International - too many that shouldn’t be necessary!

5. Support and Defend Women Human Rights Activists- Take action you too! (click on the links/names and read how)

6. Take action for Children’s Rights!

7. Be sure to read the reports and background on Darfur!

8. Join Amnesty to help end the violence in Darfur!

9. Stop the Violence in Darfur - Take action you too!

10. Keep your Eyes on Darfur and save Darfur!

11. Do more online to help!

12. Join Amnesty Wireless - Let freedom ring! (Excellent mobile phone service with 10% of your charges go directly to Amnesty International USA, at no extra cost to you!)

13. If not doing something else, at least donate to: Amnesty International, The International Rescue Committee, International Medical Corps, Mercy Corps or Doctors Without Borders!

    This is a very important post.

    Let me tell you the following very relevant to what you here posted:

    In 1989 we were in a tiny French Village (Balazuc) on July 14. In fact with family from Denmark.
    What did they celebrate?
    The Village xx century?
    The French Revolution?


    They did celebrate to bi-centenial anniversery for the declaration of the Humans Rights A Village with about 200 people living there all year round.

    They had written, on a large board at the Village Place the following (I try my best to translate to English)

    “We that do live here on this planet in 1989, we must accept the Fact that the Humans Rights are not was hoped for in 1789.
    You, that will read this one hundred years from now, we hope you have progressed more than we have done in two hundred years.”

    I never forget - such a small community adressing the most important message. But where were the media’s? No sensation. grrr.

    thanks for reminding

    — and we shall never, ever give up the struggle for Peace and Human Rights. Never.

    You should read Niclas Kristof’s columns in the New York Times. The poor guy has been talking about Darfur since before anyone knew there was genocide going on there, and he has some really shocking insights and first-hand accounts.

    Good for you!! Thank you for reminding us that just because we feel safe in our own little world doesn’t mean the world is a safe place. Millions of people have their rights compromised every day, and as you say although the first we think of is Darfur and other war torn countries, we must be aware that also in the west we have to keep an eye on our officials, ourselves, and our brothers and sisters.

    This is a great contribution and an important reminder. Its so easy to forget when you live in a country like Norway and Sweden, where everything is safe and nothing to worry about.

    Thank for taking your time to digg into this and give us a readable post.

    Btw: here from Tor and say Happy Birthday to Mr. Lifecruiser!

    It’s such a long list that at times I almost feel it’s overwhelming. The important thing is never give up hope, never give up trying to help and never give up trying to make people see.

    I found your site through your posts up at the beta. This post immediately caught my attention.

    The latest human rights document is the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It is quite comprehensive. It is also unique in that addresses the right to leisure — sports and tourism. I posted a bit about it here at Boots ‘n All and my blog.
