Amnesty International Celebrates International Human Rights Day
On December 10 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. It forms the basis of modern international human rights law and its adoption is celebrated by many nations throughout the world. Amnesty International, which works tirelessly to free Prisoners of Conscience (POC) and to remedy human rights violations throughout the world celebrates the day by holding vigils and conducting a week long letter writing campaign on behalf of selected Prisoners of Conscience, as well as obtaining signatures on petitions urging the freeing of POCs. These photos were from events in New York City.
