The basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled, often held to include the right to life and liberty, freedom of thought and expression, and equality, freedom of and from religion, freedom from slavery and most important to me is the freedom to fight for those those rights, the right to fight for human rights. Human rights includes civil rights, and maybe we as a human race have begun to evolve to the point that we finally recognize that human and civil rights are permanently intertwined.

Thanks Kenneth, I can not send you a star, so I send my respect.

Most important right we should have is the right to live free. Without freedom we have nothing. Great video Ken!

İnsan Hakları hep ihlal edilmiş ve aradan o kadar yıllar geçmesine rağmen hala insanlık düzelmemiş insan hakları hep çiğneniyor.Üstelik şimdi kadın erkek diye insan hakları cinselliğe ayrılarak içinde daha da vahşileşmiş.İnsan kadın olarak daha çok insan hakları darbe görmeye başlamış.Bu nasıl insan haklarını korumak?devlet liderleri çıkarttığı kanunlarla da insan haklarını çiğniyor.Bunu alenen yaptıkları halde sadece devlete ceza veriliyor ya o devletin başındaki liderler ve vekilleri onlarda cezayı haketmiyor mu?her şey göstermelik insan hakları tüm Dünyada kötüye gidiyor.Kadınlara çok iş düşüyor Dünya Kadınları Örgütlenmeli.

A wonderful film Kenneth, thank you. Isn't it about time we all pressured our governments to adopt a resolution at the UN to enforce this delcaration of rights. The obvious reason why this is not done is that most of our countries even here in the west fall far short of compliance. We have a long way to go in living up to this amazing declaration.

Good video. The only thing which was mentioned a bit one-sided was that apart from Jews killed during WWII, minorities such as Gays and Gypsies were killed, too. This must not be forgotten. Thanks Kenneth !

Everybody has value & worth on the planet, much as everything does. To survive & thrive, we must come together as a species & work towards respect for 1 another & our planet/resources.
Mother Earth has rights too.
Thanks Kenneth.

Thanks for this excellent video Kenneth!

Did you know that the only monument at Runneymead (Magna Carta 1215) has been erected by the American Bar Association???!! I'm glad it got its mention - by the way, there were an excellent couple of programmes recently on the BBC about Human Rights and our Law Lords - upon whom we shall depend to protect our rights if our MPs are not principled enough. Another thing - Habeus Corpus has been our protection in the UK since 1215.... until recently when Tony Blair's govt did away with it and now people suspected of dark deeds can be held for weeks without trial. It was nearly 800 years old.... Goodness knows what else will happen under the Conservatives....

Very glad to see that Cyrus the Great got a mention too - and the wonderful Eleanor Rooseveldt - wonderful woman!

Every nation should sign the declaration. It is to their shame if they do not.

A person has exactly the degree of human rights that the society he or she lives in allows. In America before the 60s people of colour had limited human rights...almost 200 years after the Bill of Rights was penned. Women couldn't vote until 1920! Today Gay people have to petition the government for the right to marry.

It would seem, and i think the video does a good job of making the point, that Human Rights are constantly in a state of flux. If you look at the laws and policies of most countries (my own included) there is still some degree of denial of human rights either officially, or in common practice. Even after all of the Gandhis, Kennedys, Martin Luther Kings and Nelson Mandelas have had their say, we still need to fight for human rights. It is apparently a journey that never ends.

Thanks Ken!
