10. December – Human rights day


Human rights and freedoms are not living in the world
An injustice committed against anyone is a threat to everyone

The tenth day of December is known as International Human Rights Day, which marks the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Genocide Convention of 1948. The regimes around the world in the least ignore more than half a century-old commitment to the Declaration and the United Nations does not prevent repression and persecution, aggressions and genocides. The target of discrimination against individuals and groups who are most vulnerable, such as the disabled, women and girls, the poor, immigrants, ethnic minorities and all those who are believed to have been different from most. Behind us was another bad year for human rights. The murders continue with minor and sporadic attention of the media and the United Nations, nor the rest of the world was no better. We have a solemn duty to defend the vulnerable, to challenge the aggressor, to protect and promote human rights, human dignity. We stand shoulder to shoulder with human rights defenders who struggle to promote freedom and human rights around the world. All mankind being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions. Together we can prevent genocide from happening again. Together we can make a better future for our children.
The killed children of Prijedor deserve a memorial. Humiliated children of Kotor Varos and around the smaller bosnian entity deserve to learn in the Bosnian language.
