Live Windows Project: Human Rights Day, 10 December

<< Back to Live Windows Project

fabrica-hrdHuman Rights Day presents an opportunity, every year, to celebrate human rights, highlight a specific issue, and advocate for the full enjoyment of all human rights by everyone everywhere.

Below are two video contributions to the Live Windows Project from students at MHMK Berlin, in Germany.

Thanks to authors Dominique Cimen, Maria Hönick, Kevin Klietsch, Bianca Koigke, Felix Pfahlert, Frederik Scheeff and Anton Voigt. Also to their tutors Nikolaus Böhning, Thomas Stegmann & Michael Wruck

 

This year, the spotlight is on the rights of all people — women, youth, minorities, persons with disabilities, indigenous people, the poor and marginalized — to make their voices heard in public life and be included in political decision-making.

These human rights — the rights to freedom of opinion and expression, to peaceful assembly and association, and to take part in government (articles 19, 20 and 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) have been at the centre of the historic changes in the Arab world over the past two years, in which millions have taken to the streets to demand change. In other parts of the world, the "99%" made their voices heard through the global Occupy movement protesting economic, political and social inequality.

Make your voice count!

People around the world used #VoiceCount to share their thoughts about the right to participate in public life and political decision-making.
