10 December – Human Rights Day

Posted by Peter MUIR

The annual Human Rights Day marks the anniversary of the Assembly’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.  To find out more visit the UN Human Rights Day website.

This year’s theme is ’20 Years Working for Your Rights’ marking 20 years since the United Nations General Assembly created the mandate of High Commissioner for the promotion and protection of all human rights in December 1993.

One group at DC working towards the achievement of universal human rights is the DC Labour Rights group.  This group is working towards improving the rights of workers in the VTech, aiming to engage in a dialogue with this large company, aiming to collaborate with them to agree upon suitable working conditions.
