“This March will be a further step in increasing awareness of human rights, a step in the direction, to make human rights a reality and a step towards a world of peace and tolerance.” Due to the tragedy of the second world war, a solution was necessary, so that such atrocities do not repeat. On December 10, 1948 the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of human rights, a document for the Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of Franklin tirelessly campaigned D. Roosevelt, former President of the United States of America. There are the 30 fundamental human rights that apply to everyone in the world. After this historic event, the General Assembly urged all of its Member States, to publish the text of the Declaration, “to ensure that he spread laid out, read and explained will be, especially in schools and other educational institutions, without any differences due to the political status or territories”.

For this reason young people have organized the “International Walk for human rights” and to take over the responsibility for the human rights”.
