UN International Human Rights Day

December 10, 2018, Human Rights Day, marks the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being -- regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language or other status. Until the adoption of ILO Convention 169 on Indigenous Peoples in 1989 and more recently until the adoption of UNDRIP by UN General Assembly in 2007, the observation of Human Rights Day was not as meaningful for Indigenous Peoples, as the UDHR does not specifically mention Indigenous Peoples. Today, UDHR, anchored with ILO Convention 169 and UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, have made a real impact. Cultural Survival's staff, Dev Kumar Sunuwar, produced a special program on International Human Rights Day, interviewing Dr. Krishna Bahadur Bhattachan, a leading sociologist and Indigenous activist from Nepal.

Producer: Dev Kumar Sunuwar

Interview: Dr. Krishna Bahadur Bhattachan, a leading sociologists and indigenous activists of Nepal.

Día de los Derechos Humanos_2018

El Día de los Derechos Humanos se celebra cada 10 de diciembre, coincidiendo con la fecha en que la Asamblea General de la ONU adoptó la Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos, es decir este año esta llegando a su 70º Aniversario de creación.

Aunque aún queda camino por recorrer para que las promesas que encierra se cumplan plenamente, el hecho de que haya perdurado en el tiempo es prueba de la universalidad perdurable de sus valores eternos sobre la equidad, la justicia y la dignidad humana.

Aprendamos más sobre este día, defendamos los derechos humanos y hagamos que se escuche nuestras voces.
