Human rights

Well, in 10th December 1948, during the United Nation General Assembly at Paris, Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) were tabled and adopted. 10th December was then declared as Human rights day.

Today, is the 60th anniversary of human rights day. Secretary General of UN, Mr Ban Ki-moon (Not Kofi Annan already, in case you still living in stone age… 😛 ) launched a year-long campaign last year, with a theme of “Dignity and justice for all of us”.

The UDHR comprises of 30 articles. Some examples are:

Article 1
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Article 2
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Article 9
None shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 26
1. Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit….

Come to think of it, Malaysia should be kicked out from UN long long time ago… but then I guess UN won’t have much members by then~

Alleged Jemaah Islamiah (neh, still remember Mat Selamat Kasturi kan?) terrorists were released from ISA this morning by that botak Home minister… But about 50 other including the famous (or infamous to BN people) HINDRAF 5 are still in, for god knows what reasons…

Police continue to harass and arrest Jerit people, who recently launched a cycling campaign to send memorandum to the Prime Minister. Cycling also cannot ah!

Anti-ISA candlelight vigil that disallowed candle lighting and wearing anti-ISA T-shirts, only in Malaysia OK?

And then Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) from Selangor suggested to “demonstrate” inside Multi purpose hall, and at most 15 minutes outdoor demo…

 

By the way, Spain is extending right to apes… too bad, many people in the countries which endorsed UDHR are worse than Spanish apes…

 

Anyway, Minister of Dis-information Shabery Cheek blamed the stupid residents in Bkt antarabangsa for buying fancy “hillview” houses, and said that the residents should not hantam (slam) the government for the landslide because they themselves took the risk…

Maybe next time government should order the houses to bear some sort of “landslidable” sign,

before selling them out? Like those flammable chemical…
