Human Rights Day speech - 2

 Good morning everyone. Thank you for taking out time and being present at this seminar session. We all are gathered here to talk about this special day of human rights.

This day is celebrated as a token to all those who stood up for someone’s rights. Human rights means the rights which every human being owns. Though, till date after years of defining these rights also a few people are not utilising them and a few people are all set to violate them. It is high time for people to actually stand for their rights. We all have been given right to vote, right to speech, right to education, right to earn and many more. These rights have been allotted to human beings after many debates and issues. It is our responsibility and right to avail each of the right introduced for us.

There are many human rights specifically announced for the special classes of humans like people with disability, SC ST, etc. We all should support these people to witness their rights so that they can avail benefits from them. At present, there are about 30, yes; 30 human rights declared. These rights are very determined and to the point for the welfare of the humans. A few of the top rights that I would name here are: Right to equality, Freedom from discrimination, Right to education, Right to social security, Freedom from belief and religion, etc etc.

The things that we scream for our social security, education of poor and many more are already addressed by the council and have been declared as a human right for everybody. It is our responsibility to withstand these and create awareness amongst all for adhering and availing these rights for their good and well being. Each of these rights were declared in year 1948 by the United Nations for the global understanding of how to treat individuals.

10th december every year is celebrated as the Human Rights Day. This day is acknowledged  as the worldwide declaration of human rights and ensure its continued existence and remembrance as a common standard for all nations. I am very sure that just like me there are many people who are not aware about these human rights. Many might not even know there exists something like this and many might be aware but don’t know how important these are and how to deal with these.

My focus about these rights would be to educate the people especially kids about human rights and how it’s our responsibility to learn and exercise them and spread the word. These rights should necessarily be a part of their curriculum so that they while growing up know what are their rights as per their existence and how important is it for them to work on these.

I would request you all to please create awareness about our human rights amongst all and ensure that on this day we can arrange a seminar slot or a special session for recalling these for our existence rights every year. Thank you for being a part and encouraging me to effectively and efficiently address this topic.

Thank you!
