Today the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), a milestone document, which underpins all international human rights law and inspires us to continue to work to ensure all people can gain freedom, equality and dignity. It was drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all the regions of the world and was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris in 1948. It is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages.

To commemorate this important anniversary Liberal and Democrat MEPs have been reading out different Articles of the Declaration in their own language inspired by the UN’s #RightsOutLoud campaign.
