Human rights protection is a global affair that needs to be addressed by every country in the world. Long are the days when discrimination of some communities was seen as legal.
The world is way past that and any government that allows or practice discriminatory tactics needs to be condemned in the strongest terms possible. The exercise of human rights should never be a preserve of any government. It is a mandatory affair.
They must be implemented without hesitation. Human rights are considered to be part of the law of the land in many countries around the world. Even in countries that do not have the rights under their constitution or do not have a constitution at all, these rights apply as part of the international law.
Human rights were set out in the 1948 United Nations Declaration on Human rights. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/
In the world today there groups or organization that stand out in the protection of human rights. These groups fall under three categories. They are; human rights groups, civil rights groups, and migrants’ rights groups. In almost every country, these groups have a presence.
The number one role is to monitor the status of human rights practice in the society. They are supposed to speak up for any illegal activities that deny people their rights. A few of these organizations include:
