Human Rights Day, Tuesday 10th of December, 2013
Human rights are the 30 rights that were created by the United Nations to protect
human beings from what is commonly understood as the fundamental rights, to
which a person deserves simply because he or she is a human being.
The Model of the United Nations supported human rights by proclaiming the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the UN General Assembly. These human
rights are a common standard of achievement for all people and all nations, amongst
their territories and their jurisdiction.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that, “… if the public discourse of
peacetime global society can be said to have a common moral language, it is that of
human rights.”
The rights I relate to the most are “…the right to rest and leisure…” because there are
some days when I just don’t want to do anything else but sleep.
As far as I am concerned the most important Human Right is the right to freedom of
movement in and out of a country because ….
The primary purpose of the UN is to maintain peace and international security. This is
part of our human rights, to make our world a better place.
I believe that the right to property is the most important right. No-one is allowed to
steal or take your property away from you. You have power over your own property.
Human rights allow people to experience
I believe the right to freedom from discrimination is the most important right.
Everyone is the same, no matter what your religion, skin colour, where you come
from, your opinions or your gender! Everyone should be treated the same!
