On 10 Dec 2016 we show our 28 human rights art-videos at 16 locations worldwide! There are very interesting programs created for this Global Videos event: for example in Tampere there's also live-music, in Hong Kong it's accompanied with a full-length documentary about the umbrella revolution, in Zaandam live-performances and a debate and in Alkmaar it's part in a big human rights event. I'm very honoured that in Brøndby we join forces with the 1st presentation of Human Rights Flag II. Many thanks to our partners and video-artists and especially Victor Valqui Vidal ! ENJOY!

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 General Assembly resolution, as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
