Lowenthal introduces bipartisan legislation honoring 69th anniversary of Human Rights Day, Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) sets out the basic rights every human being in the world is entitled to, regardless of their race, colour, religion, sex, nationality or any other status.

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. It is the responsibility of the state to provide an environment of peace to all by eradicating violence and extremism.

The white paper claimed the U.S.is a self-styled "human rights judge" who scrutinizes human rights situations in other countries.

Trump Signs Temporary Spending Bill To Fend Off A Government Shutdown
Republicans have asked for increased defense spending, while Democrats argue for an equal amount to be spent on domestic programs. But GOP leaders needed those conservatives to support the measure in the House because Democrats broadly refused to vote for it.

The statement said the promotion and protection of their rights was "crucial" for stability, economic growth and development of the country. For example, education is the most and primary basic human right, but in Pakistan more than 22 million children are out of school.

The Human Rights Day should be a time for reflection for those in positions of responsibility and power - including politicians and the security forces - and ordinary Kenyans. However, one thing that unites us all is human rights.

He added the (Max) hospital could no more admit and treat new patients, though it'll "continue to treat admitted patients". The action was taken after the victim's family members lodged an FIR against the Max Hospital branch for negligence.

As well as protecting our democracy, by recognising the importance of human independence in law they also empower us.

The rights and principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration have helped shape, guide and inspire the drafting of various documents adopted by regional, continental and national bodies, including the African Charter on Human and People's Rights in 1981, which provided for a single human rights instrument guaranteeing civil and political, economic, social and cultural, and collective rights in Africa.

Mr. Guterres noted that while human rights abuses did not end when the Universal Declaration was adopted, the instrument has helped countless people to gain greater freedom and security, and has also helped to prevent violations, obtain justice for wrongs, and strengthen national and worldwide human rights laws and safeguards. 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.
