2023 is a landmark year for Human Rights, commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the first legal document to set out the fundamental human rights and freedoms to be universally protected. The UDHR guarantees our rights without distinction of nationality, place of residence, gender, national or ethnic origin, religion, language or any other status. As the UN points out: “In the decades since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, human rights have become more recognised and more guaranteed across the globe. It has since served as the foundation for an expanding system of human rights protection that today focuses also on vulnerable groups such as persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and migrants. However, the promise of the UDHR, of dignity and equality in rights, has been under a sustained assault in recent years. As the world faces challenges new and ongoing – pandemics, conflicts, exploding inequalities, morally bankrupt global financial system, racism, climate change – the values, and rights enshrined in the UDHR provide guideposts for our collective actions that do not leave anyone behind”.

UN slogan on Human Rights Day 2022, "Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All” reminds us that none of the above is to be taken for granted. The protection of every single right requires vigilance, daily struggle and systematic effort by citizens and human rights defenders around the world. 75 years after the adoption of the UDHR, GNCHR, joins its forces and voice with them to defend the rights to Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All!!!
