Today the Zimbabwe Association of Community Radio Stations (ZACRAS) joins the rest of the world in commemorating Human Rights Day which is being celebrated under the global theme "Human Rights 365."
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights." The Association continues to state that:
- Â Human rights are essential and indivisible â€“ 365 days a year.
- Â Everyoneâ€™s voice should be given space and platform to be heard.
- Together, we must demand what should be guaranteed: our human rights.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Let us live everyday as a Human Rights Day.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the full range of human rights.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â These human rights are not particular to a specific special group pf people.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â They are not a reward for good behaviour.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â They are the inalienable entitlements of all people, at all times and everywhere, 365 days a year.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Licensing community radios is granting people or communities their human right to free expression and access to information.
