Get Ready for Human Rights Day: December 10 2010

Pakistan women in unity and prayer after the floods still are taking their toll

Why not make your presentation or gathering about Inter-People understanding which of course leads to Human Rights for All? Do not human rights cover freedom of worship and religion as well as other choices? And what of those with NO choice?

More than three months have passed since Pakistan was hit by some of the worst flooding in its history. (Olivier Matthys/IFRC) (p-PAK1508)

Here's some History about this day GO here

For me, Inter-cultural and Inter-Faith discourse is part and parcel with Human Rights because Rights come out of the following ideas are an interweaving of Rights and Inter-Humanitarian Dialogue.

AND/or why not consider tying your event on Human Rights into concern for victims of floods/earthquakes and other catastrophes natural or man-made?

ROCKWELL THE GOLDEN RULE PRINT The same year The Saturday Evening Post cover appeared Norman Rockwell was awarded the 1961 Interfaith Award of The National Conference of Christians and Jews.Rockwell cherished this recognition above all others, because it affirmed his stance that, "all men are members of the One Family of Man under God."

    SOLIDARITY in the US with Dr. Aafia Siddiqui

    Monday, November 15th,

    12 noon


    The Pakistani Consulate –

    8 East 65th Street

    (between 5th Ave & Madison Ave),

    New York City.

    Part of the International Week to Repatriate Dr. Aafia Siddiqui - a coalition in the U.S. - led by The Peace Thru Justice Foundation and the International Action Center - will pay a visit the Pakistani Consulate to hold a press conference (followed by a presentation of petitions), to call on the Pakistani government to secure Dr. Siddiqui's release and repatriation back to her home country where she rightfully belongs.

    On September 23, 2010 - following five years of secret imprisonment and torture overseas, and two years of unconstitutional pre-trial detention in the United States - this [now] 38 year old mother of three was found guilty of "attempting to murder U.S. personnel" in Afghanistan (despite all of the material evidence in her favor) and shockingly sentenced to 86 years of additional imprisonment in the U.S.

    Sign the Petition urging Repatriation to Pakistan for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui
    More than 75,000 emails have been sent with this message urging compassion and justice for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and respect for the national sovereignty of Pakistan.

    Issued by International Action Center,
