RHRC Commemorates 2017 International Human Right’s Day
Sunday, December 10, 2017
The Regional Human Rights Commission annually celebrates the International Human Rights Day (IHRD) to commemorate the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). As the UDHR turns 70, this year’s theme is #STAND4URHUMANRIGHTS. This serves as a reminder to all of us about the basic rights that we have as human beings.
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. Therefore, everyone is encouraged to stand for human rights #STANDUP4HUMANRIGHTSa and fight against human rights violations.
