Human Rights Violations…

  • Human rights advocates agree that, sixty years after its issue, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is still more a dream than reality. Violations exist in every part of the world. For example, Amnesty International’s 2009 World Report and other sources show that individuals are:

  • Tortured or abused in at least 81 countries

  • Face unfair trials in at least 54 countries

  • Restricted in their freedom of expression in at least 77 countries


Examples of violations of six articles of the universal declaration of human rights

Examples of violations of six Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights …

  • Right to Live Free…In Brazil in 2007, according to official figures, police killed at least 1,260 individuals—the highest total to date. All incidents were officially labeled “acts of resistance” and received little or no investigation.

  • No Slavery…In northern Uganda, the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) guerrillas have kidnapped 20,000 children over the past twenty years and forced them into service as soldiers or sexual slaves for the army.No Torture…In 2008, US authorities continued to hold 270 prisoners in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, without charge or trial, subjecting them to “water-boarding,” torture that simulates drowning. Former-President George W. Bush authorized the CIA to continue secret detention and interrogation, despite its violation of international law.

  • Freedom of Expression…Since 2000, the murders of seventeen journalists, all critical of Russian government policies and actions, remain unsolved.
