President Michele Capasso participated in the HUMAN RIGHTS DAY with many events organised at the Museum of Peace - MAMT by the Anna Lindh Federation.
World Human Rights Day is celebrated on 10 December every year all over the world and commemorates the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948. The birth of this important document took place in the immediate post-war period, when European and Asian territories were devastated by the aftermath of the Second World War and the whole world was horrified by the discovery of the concentration camp system devised by the Nazi regime.
The 58 countries that were members of the UN at the time, seeking redemption after the horrors of the conflict, incorporated into the Charter a centuries-old elaboration of humanitarian and civil principles, condensed into a list of 30 articles, which took their cue from the great constituent documents of the history of mankind, such as the American Declaration of Independence of 1776 or the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen born of the French Revolution. The declared aim was to spread the values of democracy, diversity and tolerance throughout the world.
