Stand up for Human Rights – Add Your Voice!

In the lead-up to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2018, join us in standing up for human rights!

Human rights are everyone’s rights. Help spread the word, in your own language.

Record yourself reading one of the 30 articles of the Declaration in any of the 135 languages currently available on this site and share your video with your friends.

Our goal is to raise awareness of the Declaration by collecting and promoting videos of as many articles as possible in as many languages as possible.

Thank you for participating. It starts with you.

Let’s Start

 

On 30th March 2017  Kmart and Target joined Aldi, Coles, Haigh’s, Woolworths and Big W with the release of their Sustainable Cocoa Policy. In their policy they acknowledge that the chocolate industry faces ‘significant sustainable development challenges, including extreme poverty and widely-reported incidences of child labour and human trafficking.’

A huge thank you to the activists who have been part of the campaign asking supermarkets and department stores to release 2020 targets. A huge thank you to these stores in joining the movement to end human trafficking. We have needed to print more thank you cards, so why not order some to take shopping and give to store staff and managers.

Solar Citizens’ Survey for Qld

Take the four minute survey to tell the Queensland Government what you think about the future of solar in our state. Will you join me? Take the survey here.  It doesn’t happen often but right now the Queensland Government genuinely wants to hear what we’ve got to say about solar and renewable energy. Thanks in large part to the support solar supporters across Queensland have shown for solar and renewable energy, the Queensland Government has committed to a minimum 50% renewable energy target by 2030.

Suicide prevention appeal To: The Hon. Sussan Ley, Federal Minister for Health

We have a national emergency. Australia urgently needs to take strong action to end the terrible toll of suicides on our community.

I call on you to at least double funding for suicide prevention in the next Federal Budget.

Spending on awareness and prevention campaigns has dramatically reduced deaths from road accidents. Please take a similar approach to suicide – and stop the suicide death toll.
