Human Rights Day is widely celebrated every year around the world on December 10. It was on this day in 1948 that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in accordance with Resolution 217A (III) of the UN General Assembly.
In 1950, the United Nations declared this important date Human Rights Day.
Article 1 of this international legal document reads: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood”.
As stated in Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms outlined in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status”.
The Declaration contains rights that apply equally to all people. To date, this international legal document has been translated into more than 500 languages.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights protects the human right to privacy, property, freedom of religion and speech, citizenship, participation in government, elections and re-election, family, work and leisure, education, health and social services, and the right to enjoy cultural and artistic works.
December 10 marks 73 years since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
This year, the National Center of the Republic of Uzbekistan for Human Rights, established on October 31, 1996, celebrates its 25th anniversary.
In connection with these dates, the National Center for Human Rights announced the holding of Human Rights Month from November 10 to December 10 this year.
