Universal Declaration of Human Rights animation


On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

This animation brings all 30 articles to life using different techniques, from pen and ink to digital animation.


  1. @aaa333ify It's a human right to live. What means, acees to needed medical treatment is a human right as well. Doesn't e.g. a woman who is just about to give birth have the right to acess a hospital for that the birth process is safe?

  2. @BostjanAvsec Amnesty International is a so called NGO, non-govermental organisation. Plus, when they e.g campaign against the war in Iraq, death penalty and guantonamo bay it's nearly impossible they#d be tied to the American government.

  3. Holderlin: “What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.” My take: What has always made the state a joy on earth has been precisely that man has Liberty to make his own heaven. These 30 rights are man made, blearing our true Rights bestowed onto us by the Laws of Nature. See my channel for details.

  4. I am Wanxia Liao, a Chinese immigrant in Canada, and a victim of a brutal Fascist racial persecution jointly conducted by the Canadian and US governments. In 1991, I challenged a White professor David Waterhouse’s theory “beauty is an European concept”, he lost and retaliated against me with a series of fraud and violations of the university’s rules. I complained to the University but was retaliated with a wrongful dismissal from my cafeteria position, causing me the loss of life’s means.

  5. Then the Ontario Human Rights Commission and an American government employee, UC Berkeley professor James Cahill set me up for criminal prosecution in that I was compelled to testify “everything true” before the Commission and then was charged for my testimony, in violation of the Canadian constitution that provides complete immunity for testimonies. I was convicted by a judge for threatening Waterhouse, despite the charge is against law and there is no any factual basis for this charge.

  6. Meantime, none of the felony crimes committed by American and Canadian White perpetrators and their accomplices has been prosecuted: perjuries committed by the American professor James Cahill, and by the OHRC officer Alan Strojin; forgery of court document and criminal fraud committed by US District Court judges Saundra Brown Armstrong and Phyllis Hamilton; death threats, threats of government forced disappearance against me made by an American government agent on Yahoo newsgroups; etc.

  7. All of these are done under a tight government organised cover-up. All the major American media refuse to publish my story, and some of them, such as CNN, even conspired with the US government to unlawfully set up secret automatic filters to filter out any information on my case on their web sites to ban my own publication attempts. Further more, those so-called "human rights groups" such as the "Human Rights Watch", “Amnesty International”, etc. ignored my request for investigation,

  8. and the cover ups have expanded to the United Nations where the then Office of "High Commissioner for Human Rights" of UN, headed by Louise Arbour, a former judge of Supreme Court of Canada, seized all the complaints I sent to UN's human rights bodies, in violation of the UN's human rights complaint procedures. My story is the best illustration of hypocrite and racist nature of the "Western democracy and freedom".

  9. It seems that this should be introduced to children in education – I'm sure most children given help understanding some of the concepts, would only see logic in each article. That's were it should start, in education.

  10. ignored:
    LIBYA- NATO- rebels: ethnic cleansing of the town of Tawerga with 10,000 inhabitans !

    Look how intelligently the newspaper manipulates ethnic cleansing in the title !

    telegraph. co. uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8754375/Gaddafis-ghost-town-after-the-loyalists-retreat.html
    officer of the rebels: "We said if they didn't go, they would be conquered and imprisoned. Every single one of them has left, and we will never allow them to come back."

  11. The fact that we have a Law which outlines the "Human RIghts" proves that we are not civilised in my opinion and even though we have this law, how many governments actually follow this to the letter, at the end of the day if you know the difference between right and wrong, you do not need a law to tell what I can and can't do.

  12. How about we start with; "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"? Whether you are religious, atheist, conservative or liberal, how about we just ALL obey the Golden Rule? If we did all other discussions about "rights" would be academic. Love your brother and treat others the way you would wish to be treated.

    The fact that there is even ONE thumbs down on this video is frightening…

  13. All human beings should have a Right to not starve to death. Somewhere in the world, every 5 seconds, a Child Starves to Death.

    Side note: A single Hellfire Missile costs $58,000. In 2011 US and NATO forces fired over 4,100 Hellfire Missiles in Afghanistan. What is wrong with this planet?

  14. I dream institutionalization of Human Rights across the world in all nations and I am sure that educating public everywhere is an important step toward realization of such dream. Please let's share it widely and as often as we can.

  15. Biometric facial recognition, Voice stress analysis, and Millimeter wave scanning technology is here to stay.  America is in a stage of Passive Resistance, and with the escalation of force the response can sway from an active level or toward a reactive retreat. When the ambulance siren sounds off, the conditioned response is to slow down and pull over,  even if your family is waving from the window as they pass you on the highway.
