Human Rights Day / Día de los Derechos Humanos - 10/12/2012

Message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, on the occasion of Human Rights Day, 10 December 2012

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on 10 December 1948, expresses the values and fundamental freedoms that lie at the heart of a united humanity. The Declaration is one of the most humanistic and inspiring texts ever written – it is also a call to action, for people and governments to join forces to raise awareness about and enforce human rights and to ensure that they are exercised in full.

Full message will be available from the Director-General's webpage 10 December.


Mensaje de la Sra. Irina Bokova, Directora General de la UNESCO, con motivo del Día de los Derechos Humanos, 10 de diciembre de 2012

La Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos, aprobada el 10 de diciembre de 1948, es la culminación del empeño en enunciar los valores y las libertades fundamentales que constituyen el cimiento común de toda la humanidad. No es solo un texto -uno de los más humanistas y más inspiradores que jamás se hayan escrito- sino también un acto que insta a las personas y a los gobiernos a movilizarse para dar a conocer los derechos humanos, hacerlos respetar y garantizar su pleno ejercicio.

Mensaje completo estará disponible en la página web de la Directora General 10 de deciembre.
