UNHR, save Ethiopian girls and women NOW!
The following video is very disturbing. It shows an Ethiopian woman who was beaten and dragged by her murderers. Later, she was found dead and the media reported it as suicide.
According to Sabah Moh'd (not her real name to protect her identity) who lives in Lebanon and is also an immigrant, Ethiopian women are treated like animals.
"Black people are suffering like hell in Lebanon. Most of them are refugees who are supposed to receive help from UNHR and been transferred to another country. But since the UNHR's employers are Lebanese, these refugees receive no help and end up in prisons or as domestic workers for no money most of the time. If they complain, the police will take to prison where prison cells are under the ground and they won't see the sunlight for months and months."
According to the Preamble of United Nation's Human Rights Declaration,
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,
Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,
Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,
Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,
Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,
Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
Well, according to the video, the UNHR has failed the African refugees of Lebanon. It's time for the UNHR to abide by its own declaration. Actions speak louder than words.
