This  time we'll have a look at our most recent topic:

As you know, in 1948 the United Nations wrote The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that established international standards about the rights and freedoms everyone is entitled to.

Watch these video clips from YouTube: 

However, human rights violations still occur around the world.

Each of the following videos portrays a violation of human rights. 
Remember to leave a comment on one of them.

                                          Child labour                                       

     Child soldiers
                                          Human trafficking                                 

      Violence against women

The challenge for us all is to fulfill the promise of the UDHR.
