Human Rights Day (10/12)

On December 10, the world community celebrates Human Rights Day, officially established at the Plenary Meeting of the UN General Assembly in December 1950.

All states and interested organizations were invited to accept this day and to hold relevant activities.

The date of December 10 was chosen in honor of the adoption and proclamation by the UN General Assembly on December 10, 1948 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) - a landmark document that proclaimed the inalienable rights inherent in every person, regardless of his race, skin color, sex, language, religion, political or other beliefs, national or social origin, property, estate or other status.
