Significance Of Today
December continues to be Human Rights Month. Throughout history there has been so much blatant violation of the rights of people. Whether that was based on the colour of one’s skin, their nationality, religion, or merely being unfortunate enough to be living under the regime of another country, people have regularly been treated really badly. Universal Human Rights Month is here to remind us of that day in 1948 when the United Nations General Assembly codified the basic human rights of every individual on the planet.
