Great post! Thanks for raising awareness about Human Rights. Many people lack knowledge and are suprised to see what they entail.

Thanks for your thoughts on human rights. As the Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reminds us, “…recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

Right! And how many countries abide by international laws. Not mine.
I have just read that the previous Australain government's last act was to buy "cluster bombs" which international bodies are trying to ban. The new government ahs done nothing about this.
PS A lovely blog, especially your photos.
