It has been 75 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations and became a landmark document in human history

The declaration affirms and upholds the equality and dignity of all human beings and their rights. Throughout these years, there have been conflicts and atrocities that violated the principles of these rights by oppressors, but the spirit of this document is so resilient that it will eventually prevail over injustice. One of the fundamental human rights is the right to food. Hunger has afflicted some members of the human family for decades and centuries. In today’s world, we are confronted with the dual challenges of violent crises and wars on one hand, and overpopulation and overconsumption of the planet’s resources on the other hand, which result in high pollution and ecological imbalance. Perhaps in this difficult time, the commemoration of the anniversary of the declaration of human rights will inspire the people of this planet to reflect and realise that beyond all ethnic, religious, national and political differences, we are all human and we are all passengers on the same ship in the vast ocean of the world. The passengers of this ship are interdependent and harm to one of them will sooner or later affect all of them. It is fitting here to recall a part of this poem by Saadi Shirazi:
Human beings are members of a whole In creation of one essence and soul.
If you’ve no sympathy for human pain ، The name of human you cannot retain.

Wishing more beautiful days to all the people of this world.
