Human Rights Day 2022 Celebrated
This event flags off a year-long celebration to mark 75 years of the adoption of the UDHR.
GUWAHATI: Human Rights Day is celebrated across the world on December 10 to mark the adaptation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the General Assembly of the United Nations in the year 1948.
Organised with the theme Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All, the 74th edition of this UN event flags off a year-long celebration towards the completion of 75 years of this landmark decision. A host of events will be organised throughout the year across the world with the singular aim to shine a light on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by focusing on its legacy, relevance and activism. It also aims to irradicate racism, xenophobia, intolerance and related discrimination in different societies across the world.
Some of the key points that need to be highlighted include that all humans are equal and UDHR aims at indivisible and inalienable rights for all humans. It is also the basis of the sustainable development goals that have been set for 2030. It establishes the blueprint for all local, national and international regulations and policies to be implemented in the coming years. They also aim to ensure that the values are equally implemented for all people across the globe. Any violation against even a single human should be treated as a violation against everyone, and to ensure that, all humans must stand up for the rights of every other. The goals also aim at an investment in a comprehensive view of human rights across the world.
An event was organised on the premises of the Guwahati Press Club on Saturday to commemorate Human Rights Day. Human Rights International Foundation undertook this celebration with several guests and journalists. Dr Barnali Sharma Barua, National Chief Director of the event gave a speech on the occasion to spread awareness about Human Rights.
