“Too often human rights are misrepresented or misunderstood.Through March for Human Rights, BIHR works in communities across the country, confronting the misinformation, debating and empowering parents, support workers, police officers, teachers, nurses, council staff, students and many others, to know what human rights are and to hear what they mean to people in everyday life. Having witnessed the work in person, I firmly believe that March for Human Rights creates a much-needed space for people from all walks of life to learn, be heard and take action around the law."

 

“This year, as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in  a political climate of increasing division and isolation, it is vital that the voices of those who believe in our shared humanity are heard and amplified. So far people from Andover to Aberdeen, Norwich to North Wales and Edinburgh to Manchester, have been showing support by signing the UDHR digital birthday card."

 

“You too can join in the celebrations and be part of the positive message we will take to parliament on 10 December: www.celebratehumanrights.uk We will be collecting signatures throughout the year, so please do take action today, and encourage others to join in.”

Sir Nicolas Bratza, Chair of BIHR, former President of the European Court of Human Rights
