It is important to celebrate international days

Why is the Human Rights Day important?

Human rights and freedoms enshrined in the text of the Declaration, run through it as a red thread and remain current. This is also underlined by the Tajik human rights activists who promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Tajikistan in various areas. Below are their statements dedicated to International Human Rights Day...

Dilnoza Khudobakhshova, lawyer of PF “Notabene”: “Human Rights Day is a reminder for us of the thorns that mankind had to go through in order to come to an understanding of the importance of the dignity of each person, regardless of any signs that each individual possesses. Therefore, the basis for the sustainable development of any society is to ensure equality and protection from discrimination.

However, it is important that people themselves take an active part in the decision-making process, which can significantly affect or change for the better not only the life of an individual, but also the whole community. Therefore, it is important to celebrate international days in order, through extensive educational and educational activities, firstly, to glorify and strengthen the achievements of mankind, secondly, to inform the general public on certain issues that cause concern and, thirdly, to mobilize resources for solutions to existing problems”.
