DAY 15 – November 25 – UDHR Article #15 – TAKE ACTION !!
“(1) Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.
(2) This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”
“30in30 – From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights”
The ongoing effort to get all Canadians to pause and consider the real meaning and underlying significance of Remembrance Day – as well as its visceral connection to the International Day for Human Rights ! There are 30 days between November 11 (Remembrance Day) and December 10 (International Day for Human Rights) – with December 10th being the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) !

As the UDHR has 30 Articles – one for each of the 30 days that separate these two profound moments in our shared national and international consciousness – “30in30 – From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights” is a shared opportunity to consider each of the Articles – day by day – as we travel from “remembrance” to why it was and is that we engage(d) in such pain, sacrifice, suffering and violent forms of conflict resolution – to the preservation and pursuit of freedom, equity, inclusion, fairness and human rights !!
