The United Nations is using Human Rights Day 2009, 10 December, to focus on ending discrimination, a theme of the UN human rights office throughout 2010. Humans Rights Day commemorates the day in 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Logo design and videos like this one promote the tagline, “Embrace Diversity, End Discrimination”.
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, says Thai pop singer and actor Khun Kob. Children, a woman, an elderly couple and a worker speak in Thai, Lao, Tagalog, Malay and English to stress the need for opportunities, dignity, respect and equality.
