Human Rights Day 2022: Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All
Human rights are our rudimentary rights or liberties. They include our right to live, our right to health, education, freedom of speech and thoughts, and equal rights. Human Rights Day is celebrated every year on December 10 globally.
Human rights uphold the interests of the citizens of a country. Every human being inherited rights no matter what caste, creed, gender, the economic status they belong to. Human rights are essential for making sure that all humans get treated equally.
“Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All” is the theme for Human Rights Day this year. The aim is to promote safe and equal rights for all human beings regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinions, or birth.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was drafted between January 1947 and December 1948. It aimed to form a basis for human rights all over the world and represented a significant change of direction from events during World War II and the continuing colonialism that was rife in the world at the time.
The UN General Assembly adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, France, on December 10, 1948. All states and interested organizations were invited to mark December 10 as Human Rights Day at a UN meeting on December 4, 1950.
Human Rights Day has also acted as the event for protests and other demonstrations in support of human rights, especially in countries that have often been beset by allegations of rights infringements. Social Liberty is imperative for each and every human being. Human Rights Day tells the significance of social equality, liberty, social justice, and the social implication for citizens. It also aims to crack the diverse social taboos present in the world.
