This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations. If you are a blogger, consider this appeal from Bloggers Unite for Human Rights, an event sponsored by Amnesty International, BlogCatalog, and Copywrite, Inc.
Bloggers Unite For Human Rights challenges bloggers everywhere to help elevate human rights by drawing attention to the challenges and successes of human rights issues on May 15. Topics may include any number of subjects — the wrongful imprisonment of journalists covering assemblies, governments that ignore the plight of citizens, even censorship of the Internet. What is important is that on one day, thousands of bloggers unite and share their unified support of human rights everywhere.
I’ll be blogging that day about human rights here as well at Kunati, Amazon, Heart of Diamonds – Life in Africa, Daily Kos, Red Room, and MySpace. I’ll also have a special photo on Photogafrica and even an appropriate cartoon on ToonLand. I hope you’ll join me in reminding the world that Human Rights are hard to earn but easy to lose if we don’t stay United.
