Half a century ago The Universal Declaration of Human Rights spoke for every person on the earth. In the distribution and receipt of human rights all people irrespective of class, race, gender or faith should be equal. Today whether it is in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay, Chechnya or Sudan, human rights are under threat from a war being waged by governments everywhere on our fundamental rights and liberties. In our view, where there are no rights, there is no justice, and where there is no justice there is no peace and security.
