The 10th December 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, this date, 10th December is established by the Assembly as International Human Rights Day.
Today we would like to remember the Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood".
Nowadays basic human rights are still disrespected in many places all around the world. Extremist movements and messages of intolerance are more and more spread and raising fears among people. Humane values are under attack.
This year Human Rights Day calls on everyone to stand up for someone's rights!
"Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. Together, we can take a stand for more humanity.
It starts with each of us. Step forward and defend the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, an LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of discrimination or violence".

The poster below is part of a campaign raised during the international project "IntercultuReality " which involved young people from different EU countries in several activities related to Human Rights and its awareness. Realizing that HR are not well known and recognized as it should, they created different posters based on some of the articles of the Declaration, in order to sensitize more people about Human Rights and the current reality. For the following months, we are going to show these posters to support their campaign.
