"The world is safer when every person can live up to his or her full potential, and every nation is free from tyranny". These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.

The above report comes in direct conflict with the fact that a United Nations committee in November this year, backed a Japan-led resolution which condemned human rights violations in North Korea. In its commitment at realising this objective, the African Union adopted a five-year (2011-2016) Human Rights Strategy in conformity with the objectives of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and other relevant instruments.

How can Human Rights exist in a world where children do not have equal rights at birth since these are determined by a document called a "passport" which dictates whether or not they have rights just due to their parents' status or because they were born one side or another of an invisible line called a "frontier" which someone drew on a map three centuries ago, for instance, without any consideration at all for the people living there? It is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages.

On this day in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris. A year later, December 10 was declared Human Rights Day.

"The promotion of respect for human rights as embodied in the UDHR is a key component of the leadership role the United States plays around the world", Lowenthal said.

He also said, "We must organize and mobilize in defence of human decency, in defence of a better common future... We must take a robust and determined stand". During the last 24 years, since its inception on the 12th October, 1993, the Commission has endeavoured to promote a culture of human rights. Unfortunately, people have no access to their basic human rights in many countries.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), monitored in Seoul, reported that the Human Rights Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences issued a white paper Saturday that attempts to "clarify who has defended human rights and who has violated them".

"We need to act to promote peace, fight back against discrimination and to uphold justice". In July 2015, the African Union Assembly declared 2017-2026 as "the Human and People's Rights Decade", and is in the process of adopting its Ten Year Human Rights Action Plan. We have many challenges in our society and it is all upto us how we fight back for justice.

The International Human rights day was observed on December 10. In 2011, after the Arab Spring pro-democracy protests in the Middle East, the day recognized the importance of social media and technology in the battle for human rights.
