Human rights day
Theme : Youth standing up for human right

Why we mark this day;

* Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day
* Our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values
* Equality, justice and freedom prevent violence and sustain peace
* Whenever and wherever humanity's values are abandoned, we all are at greater risk
* The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all
* We need to stand up for our rights and those of others.
Following the theme of this year’s human rights day; we at TAF are very aware that Youth participation is essential to achieve sustainable development for all. Youth can play a crucial role in positive change.

71 years ago today, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was born. Drafted by people from different legal, religious & cultural backgrounds from all over the world, it is a guiding light of the #humanrights movement.

On #HumanRightsDay, let's recall what it says… (thread)
Preamble:

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind,

The adults today are doing the exact opposite.

The assumption that transparency equals accountability is not entirely born out by logic or experience. Sometimes, govt transparency can be fed by a sense of "we are in power!" So transparency can also be impunity

2nd, it's easy to talk transparency when most of the citizens to whom u're accountable are illiterate & u know they can't understand a word of what u say. In 2006, former Borno Gov, Ali Modu Sheriff said less than 5% of his state cld read & write so he didn't worry about Turenci
So, if we're interested in transparency with accountability, we shdn't just bloviate on social media. We also have to take advocacy for access to quality public education v seriously. Without accessible quality education, accountable democracy has limited reach
