United Nations Human Rights Defenders Declaration

 The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights have been created approximately 62 years ago and have slowly been adapted by nations and states with  some more active than others. However since then, neither nations or states have come close to fully adapt the Declaration, implement and enforce its content meaningfully. In the mean while, human rights defenders have continue to be active in advancing and promoting human rights globally including making the Declaration of Universal Human Rights a reality and a global binding treaty. Their work can be extremely dangerous, difficult and full of hardship and can result in intimidation, harassment, violence, abuse, torture, persecution and death. Despite the existence of the United Nations Declaration on Human Defender Rights, few global citizens are aware of its existence and few nations or perhaps no nation or states uphold its contents and meanings.
