Celebration of International Human Rights Days 2016
December 10, 2016
International Human Rights Day is celebrated on 10th December every year. It memorializes the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, the Assembly approved resolution 423 (V), appealing all States and interested concerned organizations to observe 10th December of each year as Human Rights Day.
We celebrated International Human Rights Day this year and raised voice for the rights of refugees and asylum seeking in Thailand. The said event is organized in Thailand with six families seeking asylum. Little children and individuals were holding play cards seeking and requesting people to stand up for their rights. We collectively acknowledged the hardships and encouraged people to stand up and keep patience. HOPE stood alongside with these families and ensured their voice could be raised and organization is seeking possible opportunities to protect their rights by standing against injustice.
