Thursday, December 10, has been
set aside for Human Rights Day.
What is Human Rights ? It
is a day, set aside by the General
Assembly of the United Nations in
1948, to celebrate the adoption of
the historic Universal Declaration
of Human Rights. This treaty
states that by keeping this Decla
ration in mind, every individual and
organ of society “shall strive by
teaching and education to promote
respect for these rights and free
doms and, by progressive measures,
national and international, to se
cure their universal and effective
recognition and observance r ■ •
“In these days of wars and
threats of wars, we need to concern
ourselves with these violations of
human rights and to understand
how to deal with them. It is our
responsibility to uphold the worth
of human dignity and to show that
we really believe in these human
rights.” The NSA organization on
campus hopes that students will
notice this day and what it stands
for and to become aware of
sponsibilities we as individuals hold
in this need for the preservation
of human rights.”
