This year on December 10th, the international community celebrates Human Rights Day to mark the adoption of the Universal Declaration.
On 10 December 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which has become a universal standard for the promotion and protection of human rights worldwide.
The day may include protests to alert people of circumstances in parts of the world where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is not recognized or respected, or where the importance of these rights are not considered to be important. Cultural events are also organized to celebrate the importance of human rights.
