Wednesday, December 10, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Today is international Human Rights Day.
It marks the adoption, in 1948, of the adoption and the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations General Assembly.
In Belize, the United Belize Advocacy Movement, UNIBAM, issued a statement this morning saying that it joins other organizations around the world in celebrating the day.
The theme for today is “Human Rights 365” and UNIBAM says that the theme “is a reminder that everyone is entitled to basic rights.”
The UNIBAM release quotes Carolyn Reynolds of the Women’s Issues Network as saying “violence and indignities experienced by citizens, especially women, is not a stand-by issue, it requires all citizens to be concerned and be part of the solution for change.”
The UNIBAM release ends by saying that Belize remains strong in its human rights commitment and hopes for an advancement of human rights concerns that supports all citizens.
