Five Rights that are Frequently Violated

No nation has been able to guarantee access and freedom to all of the human rights outlined in the UDHR, including the right to food, even though 2023 marks the 75th anniversary of its adoption.

Every year on December 10, people around the world commemorate International Human Rights Day. The day was created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1950 to commemorate the date when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted (UDHR).

The document's 30 articles upheld human rights, including the freedom from discrimination, the equality of men and women, the right to life, the freedom from torture, the freedom from slavery, the right to liberty, the right to be treated humanely while in custody, and the freedom of movement.

Here are a few examples of human rights that are frequently abused, unprotected, or not given the attention they merit worldwide.

Access to food

828 million people go hungry despite the fact that there is more than enough food production to feed everyone on the planet. The right to food is one of the most fundamental yet frequently infringed human rights in the world because of this.

Right to be free from prejudice

Studies show that discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, colour, political opinion, religion, nationality, social standing, and sexual preference continues to be pervasive around the world and can really have a negative impact on a person's future.

Right to peaceful assembly freedom

Despite peaceful assembly being a crucial social and civic right, in practise governments all over the world regularly violate this right with impunity.

The right to marry

Everyone has the legal right to wed the person of their choice with their consent, but in the real world, people who belong to particular groups, such as LGBTQ communities, frequently find themselves unable to wed legally because of local laws prohibiting same-sex unions.

Privateness rights

Every person has the right to privacy in their homes and personal lives, but this right is only extremely laxly enforced due to government surveillance, corporate tracking, and other uses of personal data.
