Defending Human Rights Worldwide by Mar 2
It was in Paris, 65 years ago, on Dec. 10, 1948, that the president of the United Nations General Assembly, Herbert Vere Evatt, called for a vote on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Forty-eight nations voted in favor, eight abstained, but none dissented. Thus was adopted a simple, yet powerful declaration, which set out the basic principle of equality and non-discrimination:

We Won! Tell Obama: Don't Appeal NDAA Court Ruling
We Won! Tell Obama: Don't Appeal NDAA Court Ruling We did it! But now we need your help putting pressure on Obama. A federal court in New York just ruled indefinite detention UNCONSTITUTIONAL and issued a permanent injunction against use of that law. The provision would have allowed the military to detain civilians -- even Americans -- indefinitely and without trial if they're accused of certain crimes or even just associated with certain criminals.
Con esta iniciativa, queremos contribuir a la iniciativa puesta en marcha por la Sociedad Española de Medicina de Familia y Comunitaria (SEMFYC) el pasado 10 de julio y que suma ya más de 1.300 profesionales objetores contra la exclusión sanitaria. La iniciativa, dirigida en un primer momento a médicos y médicas de familia, se amplía a profesionales de todas las especialidades médicas, de enfermería, administrativos de salud... “en definitiva –explica Álvaro González, presidente de Médicos del Mundo– se trata de suscitar un movimiento del mundo sanitario contra una medida que choca contra la ética profesional. Queremos servir de vehículo de transmisión para que el personal sanitario reivindique, ejerza su derecho a la resistencia y su derecho a curar a toda persona que lo requiera, independientemente de su situación administrativa”. Para ello, se han elaborado diferentes materiales como cartelería, vídeos virales, pegatinas e insignias para redes sociales.

Horn of Africa: on the brink of a humanitarian crisis
One of the worst droughts in a century, compounded by high food prices and unremitting political strife, is spawning an immense humanitarian crisis on the Horn of Africa. Thousands of Somalis are fleeing their homeland each week; most of those who survive the brutal journey end up in refugee camps in neighboring Kenya. Aid agencies are calling it the worst drought in 60 years. Although centered on Somalia, which lacks a functioning government and suffers from constant battles with Islamic rebels, the crisis has also affected people in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. Reports suggest parts of Somalia may already be on the verge of famine, a repeat of the emergency situation two decades ago.
By the time you finish reading this paragraph, one more child will have died from something that's been preventable for over a century. Nearly 40 percent of the world's population is still unable to secure a safe glass of water or access a basic toilet. While we continue to rally around the goal of ensuring safe water and sanitation for all, the real question we are left asking ourselves: how do we truly confront this in a way that results in realizing our vision within our lifetime? Even today, as solutions are known and available, lack of access to safe water and sanitation continues to claim more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.

11 Myths About Global Hunger
One of the most common myths about hunger is that there isn't enough food in the world. In fact, there is. Hunger is often a question of access. (Copyright: WFP/Mohammed Siddiq) There isn’t enough food to feed the world, most of the world's hungry live in Africa, and it's mostly a question of droughts and other natural disasters. All of these statements are wrong.
