WFUNA Secretary-General Issues Statement for International Human Rights Day 2018
Monday, December 10, 2018

DECEMBER 10, 2018 - WFUNA Secretary-General Bonian Golmohammadi issued a statement to mark International Human Rights Day:

"This year on its 70th anniversary, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is perhaps an even more crucial and pertinent document to the times we are living in.

As the Declaration turns 70 this year, I recognize how important it has been to promote human rights around the world.

Nonetheless, 70 years into its adoption, a lot remains to be done to make the content of the UDHR a reality for all.

With rising sentiments of unbridled nationalism and increasing numbers of world leaders tempted to turn a blind eye toward human rights atrocities, the time now is more pressing than ever to inspire those around us and into upholding universal, inalienable, indivisible and interdependent human rights.

As we face this next year, I encourage you to view each of its 365 days as an opportunity to impact human rights effectively."
