Today Marks The 70th Anniversary Of Human Rights Day

In conclusion, the African Union Commission seizes this opportunity to call on all the Member States of the United Nations and African Union to renew their commitment and take all the necessary measures to ensure the effective implementation of existing norms and standards at the worldwide, continental, regional and national levels, and the realization of human and peoples rights, without any distinction or discrimination.

The UN commissioner who warned a year ago of "weaponized" populist movements potentially escalating to violence warned today in a Human Rights Day message that rights are now under assault from "terrorists, authoritarian leaders and populists".

In Latin America, activists promoting human rights are frequently murdered in countries like Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Brazil and Argentina.

"The recent situation of the Rohingya community in Myanmar has once again reminded the world that nearly 70 years after the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, these rights are still vulnerable to large-scale persecution and human rights violations due to differences in culture, religion and ethnicity", said the European Union in a statement on Saturday. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages. For simple understanding according to OHCHR, human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status.

Human rights are everywhere but there are some changes from nation to nation.

The EU, a political and economic union of 28 member states, also laid emphasis on the respect and promotion of human rights and democracy.

How can Human Rights exist when weapons are sold legally or illegally, but sold just the same, weapons systems made specifically to murder people and purchased under licence recognized by governments? "Today, we see a disturbing hostility towards human rights".

"We need to act to promote peace, fight back against discrimination and to uphold justice".

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was a shout across the world by the leading countries in the world, stating loud and clear that no matter where we live, what we believe, or how we love, we are each individually deserving of the most basic fundaments of human needs.

The advancement of human and people's rights is a core priority of the African Union. Being in poverty means deprival of human rights.

Based on this common standard, human rights crucially allow lawful and unlawful conduct, justice and injustice and equality or the lack of it, to be identified and addressed.
