Haryana's Biholi to mark Human Rights Day with call to stand up for equality, justice and human dignity
"This year, Human Rights Day marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being - regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. It is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages," stated the UN website ahead of the observation on December 10 urging the world community to 'stand up for equality, justice and human dignity'.

With #StandUp4HumanRights, UN has given the call, "We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings."

Linking Human Rights with its agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals, UN added, "Human rights are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as in the absence of human dignity we cannot drive sustainable development. Human Rights are driven by progress on all SDGs, and the SDGs are driven by advancements on human rights. Find out how UN agencies strive to put human rights at the centre of their work."

Lokmarg Foundation is going to organize an event to observe Human Rights Day at Government School, Biholi in Haryana coordinated by Rajesh Vishist of local Kendriya Vidyalaya who is an alumni of MNSS, Rai, it was informed.

The event will be presided over and addressed by RTI activist PP Kapoor with actor Gita Siroha as the chief guest.
