Human Rights Campaign

The Youth for Human Rights 2006 World Tour is now moving across Europe.

Here's a photo and story from their German visit:

Youth from the Berlin chapter of Youth for Human Rights International celebrated their freedom as part of the Youth for Human Rights International 2006 World Tour.

Although they are too young to remember the 27 years when the Berlin wall separated families and prevented East Germans from access to the West, these youngsters know that when the wall came down in 1989 that act became a symbol of freedom prevailing over oppression.

Youth for Human Rights and the Church of Scientology International have created 30 hard-hitting public service announcements (PSAs) to bring each of the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration to life, to educate youth on their rights and responsibilities. Four of these PSAs were released in the German leg of the world tour including, appropriately, Article 9, which states:

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is: “To teach youth around the globe about Human Rights, thus helping them to become valuable advocates for the promotion of tolerance and peace.”

For there to be peace on earth reaquires the recognition and the upholding of Human Rights for all peoples. In alignment with the Aims of Scientology which are "A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights," Human Rights mus be made a fact. This is why the Church of Scientology International helped produce the Human Rights PSAs and why so many Scientologists are involved in getting them out broadly so everyone can see them and learn their rights.
