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.


                                           Imagine

                                                                    
                                          Heal the world

The domestic violence video was interesting. It feels like, to people way from the matter, actually something taken from a movie.
Have a nice evening!

The video that chock me the most was the one about trainning child soldiers. I thought it was cruel for them to take away a children's innocence by making them kill another human being.

I´ve seen the videos, i gave more attention for the one from blood diamond. It's very especific, there we can really have an idea how children are treated in this world. It's so awful, my goodness...
People should really take a stand and make this people realize that they are simply poor children.
Thank you for doing this teacher, you will ate least change our point of view and specially our way of dealling with this horrible issue.

Best regards,

Hey,
So.. we're quite lucky to live in Madeira, hey ?
Still, sad to see some of these videos, but it only show that rich people will always be greedy otherwise they would be as developed as we are.
I also have to say, I like the song you chose for the "end".. but to be honest Michael Jackson ? the guy who basically changed his race, should not be singing that. Sorry, quite ironic.
Awesome blog by the way, well done.

Hi teacher, I liked the second video, I definitely learnt a thing or two; the fourth and fifth video were my favourites tough. I had already watched Taken and Blood Diamond. They were good movies altough I was shocked after seeing them for the first time. Unfortunately they depict a sad, cruel, but very present reality.

The videos in them selfs are horrible due to the message that they are transmiting but the fact of the matter is that this happens every day all over teh world!
