The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 at the Palais de Chaillot, Paris. The Declaration arose from the need to commit governments to preventing the atrocities that had come to light at the end of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitledThe full text is published by the United Nations on its website.

Section 12 of the Declaration states:

“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”

Since 1948

Our governments do not always respect our rights and the behavior of some advertisers and media organisations has also been also less than ethical in this regard. It is rightly an embarrassment to democracies whose governments and private institutions alike have been shown to be serial abusers of their peoples rights to privacy.

Rights are meaningless if it is impossible for people to protect them. Cloak is a tool that is designed to help ordinary people stand up for their rights.

If you value your privacy please pledge your support – every dollar helps.
