HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION
Human rights are the rights which people have from birth to live under humanly circumstances. These rights are protected by both government and society’s itself. Government contributes to this protection with laws and rules in constitution and agreements. Human rights will also be defended by society as people learn, adopt their rights and respect others’ rights. Nonetheless, does really government want to do something for protection human rights?, or how much does one respect to another’s rights? Moreover, how many people are there that they know their rights properly? If these questions answers were affirmative, there would be no human rights violation. Judicial complications, discrimination among people, and problem of education are three main reasons for human rights violation in Turkey. First of all, judicial complications which can be thought into two groups, namely, wrong verdicts and easy escape without punishment for military and police officials cause to invade the human rights. In the courts, there are a lot of procedure, rules and laws to be implemented by judges. Therefore, they work on and analyze trails very carefully. If judges skip something consciously or unconsciously and return wrong verdict for a trail, then it will be human rights violation. For example, Turgay Ulu who was charged with saving Kenan Güngör a so-called member of the Revolutionary Communist Union of Turkey (TİKB) from police custody on 29 May 1996. He denied this blaming and he indicated that he was nearly blind because he was myopia with the degree of minus eight. In addition to this, two police officers who said that they saw the man trying to free the Kenan Güngör claimed that the man was not Turgay Ulu. However, on 26 April 2002 after many trails the court sentenced him with life imprisonment. Turgay Ulu is still in Kandıra F-type Prison in Kocaeli (http://amnesty.org/en/library/asset/EUR44/013/2006/en/dom-EUR440132006en.html, 2006). Moreover,...

June 15, 2012
Why are HumanRights being violated in the world? Humanrights are rights that allow people to have property, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These rights should be given the day we are born and should be respected. Humanrightsviolations have happened till the present day around the world, in Rwanda with a genocide, in Uganda with the abuse and abduction of children, and in N. Korea with the mistreat of its people. Humanrights are being violated because of power, greed, and a corrupt government.
The first humanviolation we will examine is in Rwanda during April-June, 1994. The Hutus killed almost 1,000,000 Tutsis in a period of 100 days, creating one of the largest genocides in history. After the conquer of Belgium on Rwanda, the groups living there, the Hutus and the Tutsis, have disliked each other. Belgium created I.D. Cards to differentiate the Hutus and the Tutsis. Belgium considered the Tutsis to be superior for many years. The Hutus hated that fact and therefore hated the Tutsis. After Belgium left Hutus took over the country and treated the Tutsis like “roaches”. It was then when the genocide started.
...The two-decade conflict in 19th century in Mexico is considered a dirty war due to the humanrightsviolations that occurred between the army and the citizens. Its impact still affects a number of people, especially those who survived from clandestine camps, including me.
The Mexican Dirty War started in early October of 1968, just days before our first Olympic Games. It began with a massacre took place in the Tlatelolco section of Mexican City and then spread throughout the whole country. During that time, Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, Luis Echeverria and Jose Lopez Portillo were the presidents of Mexico, who should take responsibility for the abuse of power of the army. They intentionally overlooked the fact that the army tortured the citizens to suppress the rebels. Known as guerrilla fighters, a group of people rose in order to fight against the army and to protect the Mexicans. I was a guerrilla fighter and I am proud that I revolted against violations although I had to separate from my family and my friends and live secretly. The picture above shows several other female prisoners and me at Santa Martha Acatitla prison in the 1970s. Personally, I am glad that there were many like-minded women who were not afraid of the army and were willing to devote them into the pursuit of equality and democracy.

Economic Problems in Society
“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.” John F. Kennedy shows how important HumanRights is everywhere. If one law is broken against HumanRights, pandemonium is expected from other citizens. The HumanRights system has been around for over 200 years in American history and is continuing to bring peace and stopping deter aggression, but many countries in the world seem to forget about HumanRights or forget about the meaning to live as a human being. China and North Korea both hold strict rules and regulations on how families in that country should live. In Iran, people can be executed just for being gay. There are many different fields in which HumanRights needs to be looked at and reformed properly through strategic methods that will help ratify peace. The way to restore HumanRights properly is by having the Private Sector and Voluntary Sector, since not government ran, provide the ones harmed by violations given care and having rehabilitation for the accused, otherwise chaos could break loose.
Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, always wants to ratify HumanRights to make it the safest it can...
...proportion of child labor in the organized sector but it has spread its tentacles in the unorganized sectors such as road construction, weaving industry and restaurants. According to the 1981 census, Jammu and Kashmir had 10.53 per cent, the highest number of child labor incidence out of which about 85 per cent was engaged in handicrafts and handlooms. Aristotle had compared the superiority of the educated over the unlettered and said that it was as much as the living are to the dead. The importance of education for the physical, intellectual and moral will of an individual cannot be overemphasized and its success lies in releasing the individual from the clutches of ignorance in all possible permutation and combinations. The National HumanRights Commission NHRC has concentrated on eliminating child labor, particularly child prostitution, which in a way has become an organized, clandestine profession. The Commission has made stupendous progress in eliminating child labor in the glass industry of Ferozabad district in Uttar Pradesh. The news of the deportation of 75 Indian children, including girls, from Saudi Arabia points the underground functioning of a powerful syndicate which sells poor, deformed children, particularly female children, from the Murshidabad district of West Bengal. The Commission can play an active role by involving nongovernment organizations and creating awareness among the general masses. It is paradoxical that while the...
...The Unbroken Pandemonium
A Rhetorical Analysis of “Women’s rights are HumanRights” by Hilary Rodman Clinton.
Many people choose to believe that women rights issues only affect Muslim countries, but that logic is so far from the truth. Women’s rights around the world are just as important as all other issues, and it is a critical indicator towards understanding general worldwide existence.
There is also that group of people, who believe that women’s rights are not as big an issue as they were in the United States, some 150 years ago – which is simply far from being true.
The rhetoric in empowering women has always been an ongoing subject in all countries, and we find that to date, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life; some of which range from cultural, political and the socio-economic aspects of life itself.
When Hilary Rodman Clinton conveyed her speech at the U.N. 4th World Conference in Beijing China, in September 1995, her one significance fight was to bring a renewed strength to the women in Beijing. She needed to let them know that the struggles, the abuse, the killings and every mishap they encountered on a day-to-day basis, are not a singular struggle, but instead a cohesive struggle, which needed not ever happen again.
Therefore, the fight for equality, justice and peace for all; It had to be a common and continuous goal, which had to reign in Beijing;...
...when compared to men. They have been thought as tools to do such things as reproduce, cook, clean, and to do the bidding of all males (especially their husbands). Without these qualities woman were considered nothing until the woman’s rights movement of the twentieth century. One of the people who supported this movement was Hillary Clinton. In one of her most famous speeches: “Woman’s Rights Are HumanRights.”, Clinton tried to address the world in the United Nations Fourth World Conference on woman in order to target those who thought less of women. This speech was given on September 5th, 1995 in Beijing, China.
Some of Hilary Clinton’s credentials for the speech included being first and foremost a female, a first lady, a constant advocate, and being a success in strengthening the local legal aid offices. “She also traveled to more than 80 countries as a representative of our country, winning respect as a champion of humanrights, democracy and civil society” ("U.S Department of State. Diplomacy in Action") and therefore is knowledgeable not only in persuading others but also in humanrights. This is what gave her the right (or ability) to speak of the topic previously mentioned.
In Clinton’s speech she focuses completely on woman’s rights and so as to grab the attention of the nation she compared the meeting of the United Nations...
...HumanRightsViolations in Uganda
According to Article One of the Universal Declaration of HumanRights set forth by the United Nations, “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.” The interconnectedness in the world produces a new agenda of international issues which affect both powerful and less powerful countries. The doctrine of humanrights aspires to provide the contemporary, allegedly post-ideological, geo-political order with a common framework for determining the basic economic, political, and social conditions required for all individuals to lead a minimally good life (Bova). The effectiveness of promoting and protecting humanrights is significantly aided by individual nation-states’ legally recognizing the doctrine. The moral justification of humanrights is thought to precede considerations of strict national sovereignty (Bova). For many of its supporters, the doctrine of humanrights aims to provide a fundamentally legitimate moral basis for regulating the contemporary geo-political order.
The issue of humanrightsviolations has been prominent in many societies and states for...
...Violation of Child Rights
First of all, if we want to talk about violation of child rights we have to define child rights, what they are, and to whom they are intended.”A child is any human being below the age of eighteen years, unless under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier.", World leaders in 1989 decided that children needed a special convention, because children often need special care and protection that adults do not. The leaders also wanted to make sure that people under 18 year old have humanrights too.
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted and opened for signature, ratification and accession by General Assembly resolution 44/25 of 20 November 1989 and entry into force on September 2nd 1990. The Convention spells out the basic humanrights that children everywhere have: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest; to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and to participate fully in family, cultural and social life. The four foundation principles of the Convention are non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child. Every right spelled out in the Convention is inherent to the...
