The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On Decem­ber 10, 1948 the Gen­er­al Assem­bly of the Unit­ed Nations adopt­ed and pro­claimed the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Human Rights the full text of which appears here. Fol­low­ing this his­toric act the Assem­bly called upon all Mem­ber coun­tries to pub­li­cize the text of the Dec­la­ra­tion and “to cause it to be dis­sem­i­nat­ed, dis­played, read and expound­ed prin­ci­pal­ly in schools and oth­er edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions, with­out dis­tinc­tion based on the polit­i­cal sta­tus of coun­tries or ter­ri­to­ries.”

Today, Wednes­day, Decem­ber 10, 2008 marks the 60th anniver­sary of the Assembly’s adap­ta­tion of those Rights.

Any­ways, here are the ones that I real­ly dug below. You may click on the thumb­nails to view a larg­er ver­sion.
