Due to the atrocities that were committed against the Jewish population as well as homosexuals and all those not deemed to be pure bred Germans, according the Nazi rule of Germany until Adolf Hitler who was disposed of in 1945, the United Nations wanted to ensure that those atrocities never happened ever again. So United Nations created in 1946 the United Nations Commission of Human Rights.. its objected was purely this…
The United Nations Commission on Human Rights was established in 1946 to weave the international legal fabric that protects our fundamental rights and freedoms. Composed of 53 States members, its brief expanded over time to allow it to respond to the whole range of human rights problems and it set standards to govern the conduct of States. It also acted as a forum where countries large and small, non-governmental groups and human rights defenders from around the world voiced their concerns.
During its regular annual session in Geneva, for which over 3,000 delegates from member and observer States and from non-governmental organizations participated, the Commission adopted about a hundred resolutions, decisions and Chairperson’s statements on matters of relevance to individuals in all regions and circumstances. It was assisted in this work by the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, a number of working groups and a network of individual experts, representatives and rapporteurs mandated to report to it on specific issues.
In 2006 the United Nations Commission on Human Rights became the United Nations Council of Human Rights.
The Council was created by the United Nations General Assembly on 15 March 2006 by resolution 60/251. Its first session took place from 19 to 30 June 2006. One year later, the Council adopted its “Institution-building package” to guide its work and set up its procedures and mechanisms.
Among them were the Universal Periodic Review mechanism which serves to assess the human rights situations in all United Nations Member States, the Advisory Committee which serves as the Council’s “think tank” providing it with expertise and advice on thematic human rights issues and the Complaint Procedure which allows individuals and organizations to bring human rights violations to the attention of the Council.
The Human Rights Council also works with the UN Special Procedures established by the former Commission on Human Rights and now assumed by the Council. These are made up of special rapporteurs, special representatives, independent experts and working groups that monitor, examine, advise and publicly report on thematic issues or human rights situations in specific countries.
Review of the Council
When creating the Human Rights Council in March 2006 the United Nations General Assembly decided that the Council’s work and functioning should be reviewed five years after it had come into existence at the level of the General Assembly. More information about the review and its 2011 outcome are available here.
Last night under the leadership of Donald Trump, who was aptly nicknamed SCROTUS (So Called Ruler of The United States) removes America from the Council… which paves the way for him to treat people like shit… basically, and allows him to breach their Human Rights…
Can you image leaving a country where you fear for your life, where women and children are raped and there is violence towards women and children from gangs and drug cartels… and then arriving in what is supposed to be a civilised country only to be wrenched from your child?
YOU DON’T TAKE CHILDREN AWAY FROM FAMILIES… it is as simple as that. The children are being processed and the parents are going through the criminal system, and then deported. FFS this is 2018 not 1945. Haven’t we seen enough death and destruction through the hands of a tyrant to last us a lifetime? Hasn’t history taught us anything.
And these people know full well once in America they will have to work… there is no benefit system for them to rely on.. unlike here in the UK.
OK so he wants to clamp down on immigration… fine … nobody is saying don’t but you don’t act like a bull in a china shop whilst clamping down. Get the proper services in… if children are being trafficked then deal with those children who have been taken illegally from their parents. Don’t make every child suffer because of a policy that breaches the most basic of human rights.
When you tuck your child into bed tonight or your grandchild, niece or nephew … think about the child that is sleeping under a foil blanket in cages crying for their parents. STOP TRUMP before it is too late.
I just hope that the United Nations sits up and takes stock of what Trump is doing and hauls his fat hairy ass across the burning coals… because this man is not just ruining America he is ruining the world.. with his policies… ranging from pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement… forcing tariffs on countries that export to the US causing an economic meltdown due to America’s new import tariff system. All this tariff stuff does is create a trade war… if he imposes 25% on Steel and 10% on aluminium then all other countries will do is impose tariffs on American goods. And that is not good not just for America but for every person.
*Apologies for the language but this man makes my blood boil.*
And here IT is defending his inhumane actions…
