Do you know your Human Rights? In prepar

Do you know your Human Rights? In preparation for #HumanRightsDay tomorrow have a look at the #Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the #UN General Assembly on 10 December 1948, which represents the first #global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. Even though it is not legally binding, the Declaration has been adopted in or has influenced most national constitutions since 1948. It has also served as the foundation for a growing number of national laws, international laws, and treaties. Know your rights! http://ow.ly/rAO1r
